In 2016 after hearing a speech during a run, which I still listen to daily, I found the inspiration to give photography everything I could and I never looked back.

With no formal training, no professional background, nor a mentor to guide me on this journey I jumped right into the deep end. Emailing dozens of bands a week, watching YouTube, reading blogs and web forums I soaked up what I could. Slowly I began shooting concerts on my own and after meeting local photographers I was given the opportunity to join a local publication, Twin Cities Media.
The rest, is history.
I pursue photography with a very simple mindset. Preserve the moments as they are fleeting and none is like another. Nor should any photograph be treated as such. I take pride in personally handling every image I share or publish. And will always do so.
I am a Minneapolis based photographer by passion and obsession. I attended the University of Minnesota for earth sciences because it was out of my comfort zone. During the day I work in software support because I enjoy the challenge and helping people. And when I bought my first car I taught myself to fix it and still do not use mechanics. Because if there is any way I can I will.
I am always seeking new opportunities to progress my work and provide a quality end product for any client.
