I was born in Northern California deep behind the ‘Redwood Curtain’ and have been making photos since I was a young girl staging photoshoots with my point and shoot film camera and Barbie dolls. As I grew older and moved further south to the Sacramento area and continued to pursue photography in high school learning the ins and outs of the dark room and winning multiple California State Fair awards for her work. I decided to pursue fashion in college moving up to Portland Oregon for my studies, while in school I made sure to continue my photographic pursuits including conducting photoshoots for friend’s final fashion collections. Upon graduation I moved across the country to New York City where I worked in the fashion industry for the past 6 years in product development and technical design positions for many distinguished high-end brands while spending my free time photographing the city and my many trips around the world.
Now that some familial needs have brought me back to Northern California for an indeterminate amount of time, I am using this time to refocus on my first true creative love photography and spending time exploring the bountiful nature of my home state.
I am bi-coastally based in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City, currently spending most of my time in SF. I am available for projects near and far.
