Hello and welcome to my website. Photography has been part of my life for over 26 years. I currently am based in the beautiful Pacific Northwest just above Seattle, Washington. My background in marine biology led to explorations beneath the sea where my true appreciation for the natural world began. And from this passion was born my love of photography, both as a way to document my experiences but to also share them with the world. After years of dedication underwater, my interests and life changes shifted to coastal landscape photography, a natural progression born from the inspiration found in and around my time spent on and in the ocean. Coastal photography expanded inland, of course, and the journey continues to evolve. Through photography as an art form, I work towards creating images which are both personally meaningful in addition to leaving an impression with the viewer. My main joy of teaching is to see that switch flip in the mind of a photographer, when an idea grabs hold and creativity follows.
