Find Your Person, Find Your Place

The Rest Will Follow

For the last 12 years I've traveled the world, listening to people's stories. I think it all starts there - with listening, taking things in with no preconceived ideas of what will be presented to me. I try not to tell the same story twice or rely on things I know will work. Your story is just as unique as you are.

I believe in the healing power of having your story told.

Fine Art Prints

Over the last fifteen years I've traveled to the far corners of the world, often alone. For the longest time I struggled with not sharing these places with the people I love, but over the years I learned there's a difference between feeling lonely and being alone. I need solitude to stay grounded. These places have my heart.

MY main GOAL IS

To Follow The Story Wherever It Leads Me

The Person Behind The Lens

My photography isn't airy and light, nor is it dark and moody. I go in with the intent of showing how it felt to be there.

Beauty is lowering your guard and allowing yourself to be seen.

Healing Words

Jonas,

I want you to picture Jeff and I squeezed in to our round chair, we don’t really fit and our dogs have been asleep at our feet for hours. It is very chilly here and the leaves are falling but we are reluctant to put on our heat yet. I say to Jeff, “let’s check your unemployed wife’s email, maybe we are about to get wealthy.” When I saw “it’s up” I stopped breathing. You reminded me that all that matters is squeezed into that chair next to me.


...


You have healed parts of me. If that is not the measure of your success, I don’t know what is.

I love you.
