My passion for photography surfaced early in life when I would study old photographs for hours. I realized in those early years the power and importance of recording memories for future generations. When not engrossed in photography I would craft or draw with various materials.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Visual Arts(Media) from the University of California, San Diego in 2004. While at UCSD I studied with world renowned artists in many different art mediums. One of my favorite field of studies while at UCSD was that of painting. I had the privilege to be one of the few recommended for the advanced courses in painting with Ruben Ortiz-Torres, Kim MacConnel and Barbara Kruger. While at UCSD I studied enough to minor in both Painting and Photography.
Ballet photography is my lifelong artistic pursuit. I really enjoy collaborating with dancers and was grateful to be San Diego Ballet's photographer for their 2019-2020 season.
I hope that my passion for creativity is reflected in every aspect of the work I do.
