I'm a van based adventure photographer chasing film projects and snow storms across the west. 
My passion for photography overtook my design career after moving to Colorado. Working full-time chasing athletes around the world, I partner with brands to craft authentic stories of adventure. Despite a change in tools, design plays an active role in everything I do.
