Maybe it sparked when I asked for a subscription to Architectural Digest for my 11th birthday or watching my dad build models of our house before beginning an add-on or remodel, maybe while earning my BFA in sculpture or working as a graphic designer. Either way, my love for design, people, and architecture has brought me to where I am. I thrive when I'm walking through a space and discovering details that make it unique or imagining an environmental portrait to show how a person fits into it.
Like my commercial work, my documentary work stems from inspiration at a young age. Watching westerns with my grandpa, who paid for medical school as a rodeo cowboy, and learning to ride horses at his ranch led to infinity for the American West. My projects are inspired by that and often focus on rural stories that depict the evolving West.
Whatever you hire me for, my goal is to make photos like folk songs—sometimes improvised, always genuine, personal, and capturing the ups and downs of life.
