I was born and raised in the small island town of Sitka in Southeast Alaska. My passion for photography budded at age 13. Since then, I have worked to capture and share my appreciation for the beauty, value, and interconnectedness of the natural world through workshops, travel, summer internships, and simply getting outside. I recently graduated with a degree in Resource Conservation from the University of Montana and have minors in climate change studies and media arts. More and more, I am finding interest in using photography to communicate the relationships between people and nature and the importance of sustaining those connections in our dynamic world.
