Hello! I'm a jack-of-all-trades residing in the southwestern United States. I hold a degree in psychology and I work as a forensic pediatrics researcher, photographer, multimedia specialist, and bookkeeper. My freelance photography career began with a devout interest in travel. I've ventured coast-to-coast in the United States via car and plane. It's a cliché dream to want to see the world, but I aim to do exactly that. I would like someday to work full-time as a landscape and architectural photographer.
When traveling, I'm happiest if I experience things both large and small in equal measure; I could spend hours lensing a monstrous cathedral or sitting in a neighborhood cafe if the company and atmosphere were interesting.
