"I am a Colorado photographer based in Denver, as well as the Editor-in-Chief of Jute Magazine. I kind of got my start in photography pretty early in life. Mr father is a nature and landscape photographer, and I grew up in the dark room helping him process film and create prints. We had a dark room in my basement. However, I never wanted to be a photographer as a kid. I changed majors numerous time throughout my young adult life until I finally decided it was in front of me all along, so I enrolled at the Art Institute in 2011.
I think I fought it because I knew landscape wasn't a good fit for me. What I did learn in school is that I love photographing people, especially in fashion. For me it's such a pure form of storytelling and I love the collaborative aspect. It feels good to work in a team to create art. I'm definitely not a solitary person. So, now that I'm graduating I'm working full time in fashion and portraiture and love it! The next step will be my big move to Prague next year in search of a bigger market. I think there are big things to come."
