I have craved a creative outlet my entire life. I spent my youth in countless painting and illustration classes despite the fact that I always ended up making more mess than 'art,' despite the fact that I can't draw for beans. I studied (and hated) photography in high school but it wasn't until a few years later when I found myself in an unfamiliar landscape of mountains and clouds that I picked up a camera again and developed a genuine love for photography.

I'm an old soul, black-and-white movie lover, a hoarder of books, and a full-time daydreamer. I love unmade beds because they're messy and honest. I am forever falling in love with people who are passionate about something.

Let’s have an


(and maybe some nachos)

“The mountains are calling,

and I must go."


Click on the image above to be taken to a gallery of photos from my drive across the country during the month of June, 2015. Ideally I'd like to road trip (or travel overseas!) once a year; have any recommendations? Let me know, I'd love to hear them!


This is where you'll find the stuff I can't fit into any other category. These are photographs I've created based off of dreams I have had, random ideas that have popped into my head, and more. Feeling a little bit curious? Take a peek!
