I lived in Wisconsin for my first twenty years. Raised by my parents who, although both working in the science and medical field (nurse and veterinarian), both expressed their creativity in their free time, my mother decorating the house every season with gusto, and my father becoming the family photographer. After graduating high school, I enrolled at UMD (University of Minnesota, Duluth). It was there that I quickly rediscovered my childhood passion of the arts and enrolled in classes exploring all types of art mediums, but in the end, focusing on one: photography. Although I never finished college, (though I keep telling my parents I will).
My photos have been published in a book of Wisconsin photos and been recognized in a Smithsonian photo contest.
I continue to shoot nature landscapes and close up macro photos. I can't put my camera down.
