About

Born and raised in the midwest I started photographing at age 16 by documenting my experiences in the punk/hardcore music scenes of Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska.

With a BFA from the University of Nebraska and an MFA in Photography from Indiana University I have spent most of my photographic career in the art world; exploring my interests in urban landscape, cultural voyeurism and photographically based artist books.

In 2016/17, I will be stepping away from a 14-year career of teaching in higher education to pursue my own creative endeavors.

I am seeking opportunities to help others to create visual content and share their stories.

Based in Portland, Oregon I am available for commercial and editorial assignments any where in the world.
