I have a passion for the preservation of nature, culture, and history and a drive to contribute to our collective knowledge base through photography. The camera is more than just a tool or an artistic medium — it is my key to gaining access into new worlds and insight into old ones; a way of continually seeing things through new eyes. It is a means of learning about the world and educating others.
I have been doing photography and graphic design professionally since 2005. I have previously shot nature, architecture, and historic landmarks for the Commercial Research Image Archives, events for Chicago Ideas Week, numerous concerts, products for U.S. Cellular, and more.
