ABOUT

I'm an extroverted introvert. I hate small talk. I hate fuss + frill. Instead, I want the real stuff, the good stuff. I'm not the most social and loudest person at the party, but I thrive during shoots. It's the one-on-one time that we really get to know each other. My weirdness comes out and that's when you'll learn I eat entirely too much, have a strange obsession with fat cats, and that blonde is not my natural hair color. Shocker, huh?

I know I'm not the photographer for everyone. I'm a little edgy, a little bit weird, and a whole lot of unconventional. Perhaps I'm a little selfish as well, but I know the type of work and people that get me going. I've been doing this for long enough where all I want to do is create imagery that inspires, feels, and evokes some sort of emotion. This is not my full time job. I don't have to shoot everything that comes my way. This is not about the money, fame, or recognition. This is about creating that oh shit type of imagery. The imagery that makes you pause, think, and make you tingle inside. 

I don't just want to be another vendor or some stranger you hired for one of the most important times of your life. I want to be more than that to you. You're not a number to me, so why should I be one to you? I want to get to know you: to know what makes you tick, what makes you laugh, what fuels your passions. This is less about photography, and more about your story. Your story doesn't have to be epic. In fact, I doubt mine is any more epic than anyone else's, but it's my story. It's the story that made me into me. You have a story. Let me help you tell your story in the most raw, epic, and creative way possible. 

I recently graduated from the U of M with a degree in advertising and currently work for an advertising agency downtown Minneapolis. Check out that portfolio here
