My Story:

I grew up near the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. And after 10 years in Texas, I once again call Virginia home. My passion for photography began as a way to capture my personal travel adventures. Living in and traveling west for many years, I fell in love with photographing the vast landscapes and wide open skies. I try to spend as many days as possible capturing a sunrise, chasing light through a forest, or watching the sun as it sets over the ocean.

My recent work in macro photography has been a surprise addition to my photographic journey. To escape so deeply into the details of a tiny object turns off the world for a few moments.

I am proud to have my work exhibited in several galleries across the U.S. and to teach local macro workshops.

My goal as a photographer and in life is to continue learning and growing. I always try to capture the expected in unexpected ways and to embrace the light and the shadows.
