I am lucky to call the Pacific Northwest home. Born and raised in Oregon, I live within a 100 miles of the Pacific Ocean, the Columbia River Gorge, Mt. Hood Wilderness and the high desert of Oregon. My love of nature has nurtured my love of photography. I have spent the last seven plus years fine tuning my photography skills creating the photos you see on this website. My experiences and contributions are many including; working as a portrait and wedding photographer, contributing member of Professional Photographers of Oregon board of directors 2007-2009, landscape workshop leader, active team member of Photo Cascadia and blog contributor.
