I’m a Denver-based photographer and Pulitzer finalist whose work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. I specialize in intimate portraits and documentary coverage. When telling stories, it’s not enough to convey information; people have to care about what they see. So I try to forge a relationship between the subject and the viewer then get out of the way. I also try not to take pictures I brought with me in my head. I do my homework, solve problems, meet deadlines, and know the person in front of my camera is far more important than the person behind it.
Every photograph begins with an idea. The job of a photographer is to not only capture the vision, but manipulate it into art, bigger than life and beyond any initial expectations.

I am a filmaker, a photographer, writer, designer, and digital media educator. As a freelancer, I’ve produced video content and photographed for advertising, editorial, and documentary projects and I’ve edited, written and designed for fine art photography books, blogs, and magazines. At the core, I am an explorer. I love to be going somewhere. And that includes while I’m creating work. Whether it’s carrying gear for weeks across the desert, or filming from a rope 1000 feet off the ground, snowshoeing in or snowboarding out, it’s the love of my work and these adventures that keeps me doing this. I love it when the job offers far flung adventure and I’m quick to pick up a challenge. Adaptable skills and a sense of the authentic image have been the core of imagery and I feel my ability to learn and adapt quickly is one of my greatest assets.
I wasn’t allowed to watch much TV growing up – only one hour per week – my choice was (of course) MacGuyver. To fill the other idle indoor childhood hours I was surrounded, floor to ceiling, by National Geographic magazines. Harvested from local thrift stores they dated back decades. I would spread them out and float for hours on a sea of chrome. It is in that spirit which you find me now.
I take authentic, moment-based images for brands and publications. My work has varied in scope and subject matter, but certain things remain consistent: an emphasis on curiosity, human connection, and immersive experiences. I love exploring new places, meeting new people, and learning about cultures and communities outside of my own. Ask me to travel and I will say yes.
