Photography is a medium that seemed to steadily creep into my life, until, at once, it became part of my mind’s eye. When surrounded by beauty, I find my hands twitching to adjust the aperture or searching for the most dynamic place to stand, in hopes that I might capture the significance found in that moment. Art has always been a part of my life, and I find the more I observe or create, the more I must explore. For me, being an artist is living through a constantly adjusting lens, one that shows me illusions, uncertainty, and sometimes, truth.
The greatest moments of my life have been ones of compassion and reverence. Whether it be an intimate wedding on the shores of a lake or an international trip to Mexico with a non-profit, I make photographs to pursue those ardent moments of vulnerability, joy, sadness, silliness, apprehension, resilience, and tenderness.
I was raised in scenic Shelburne Vermont, and currently reside in Winooski, Vermont with my partner, Nick, and our rescue dog, Zhivago. I am a coffee devotee, a candle-maker, a bibliophile, a film appreciator and an explorer.
