I am an award winning journalistic + lifestyle photographer from sunny South Bay, CA.
My love for photography began in middle school when I picked up my first DSLR. I then was determined to find a school with good waves and a journalism program. I went on to study journalism and multimedia production at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida.
I am a huge believer in being natural… gravitating towards golden light, captivating meaningful personal touches and unique details, as well as shooting the raw beauty of an individual or place.
When I am not taking photos, you can most likely find me surfing, camping, running with my crazy Jack Russell, Otto, or hanging out with family and friends.
Where have you lived?
Bucket list locations?
Coffee or tea?
So... I grew up in Palos Verdes surfing and playing soccer. Then I decided to go as far away as I could on the map for college, and landed in the oldest city in America...St. Augustine, FL! After college, I lived in Costa Rica for 1 year and worked for a local magazine while conducting photojournalism work!
Does the entire map count? :)
I would have to say these are my top 5:
5. El Salvador
BOTH. I need both to function.
2. Running on the beach (in actuality I am just walking and taking sunset/ocean pics the entire time... does that count? :)
