I’m a passionate soul,
Life is a beautiful whirlwind of experiences. My story is written in ink; no room to second guess or attempt to erase. My loved ones, creating and getting inspired are what make my spirit happy.
I believe in the magic that coexists with love and I believe that love is the greatest of all things.
My passions and artistic visions come from the big man upstairs. Without this amazing fuel to my fire I would not be where I am today.
I studied Visual Communications and Photojournalism at The Art Institute of Chicago, shot festivals and concerts throughout the Midwest and experienced life as a foreigner in South Korea for a year. These experiences drive me and have left me craving for more.
Born and raised a city girl but my wanderlust soul craves the open road. Give me mountains, an endless star-filled sky, retro diners, midsummer night baseball games, crisp Autumn football Saturday's and my soul is well.
I love people and I love their stories. By day, I work with Veterans where I get to hear some incredible stories, create memories and get the best life advice from some of the coolest gents and gals that have graced this planet. I am a better person for knowing them.
By night, I am a photojournalist covering concerts at local venues and festivals.
I want to explore; go everywhere and anywhere, come as strangers - leave as friends, get a tattoo or two along the way and photograph it all. I will forever be on this creative journey.
"Fall in love with the process of becoming the very best version of yourself."
