Hiking is my passion. I discovered it in Colorado during my time at Colorado State University studying mechanical engineering. The mountains gave me joy, happiness, good times, and a release. Whatever the mood,  the backcountry always healed, helped or facilitated well-being and joy. 

One year ago I moved to Kansas City, MO for my work. Moving from the mountains felt like ripping my passion from my heart. As humans do, we cope and evolve, as I did to discover similar feelings in nature in my new location. That did not last long; however, as I am now relocated to Colorado! Phew, can't go too long without the mountains!

Photography gives me the chance to help share my feelings, adventures, and experiences with all of you.  I hold these images and these places dear to me, and as long as I can hike to explore new places you'll find me with a smile on my face.


As someone who spends every moment of free time in the outdoors, I am a proud member of the Nature First Photography Alliance, and strive to hold these values true:

  1. Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.

  2. Educate yourself about the places you photograph.

  3. Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.

  4. Use discretion if sharing locations.

  5. Know and follow rules and regulations.

  6. Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.

  7. Actively promote and educate others about these principles
