As a Nashville, Dallas, and San Francisco-based commercial advertising photographer with a BA in Photography from Thomas Edison State College, and a Master’s of Divinity in Theology, I create art and tell stories from a deep understanding of the heartbeat of humanity. I travel far and wide both regionally and internationally for the stories that have to be told, beg to be told, and I simply cannot help myself in bringing them to life. See, anyone can tell a story, but it takes a perspective, passion, depth, and spark to give that story wings to soar. Along with these qualities, and a passport looking to be filled, I will travel anywhere.
I shoot in diverse mediums, recognizing that the differences between a digital photograph and film image can give unique depth to what I want to showcase. From a tried and true full format Leica digital camera to two film Hasselblads, I shoot with intense purpose and intentionality. These cameras, along with hours of knitting (yes, knitting), have taught me the value of patience, finding the humanity in everything, being 3-4 steps ahead of where I need to be, and making the complex seem effortless.
My work, through directing and creating each shoot and the stories that it can’t help but tell, speak for themselves. I can tout all my credentials and clout, spouting flashy buzzwords that you’ll find on other sites such as visual storyteller, commercial creator, lifestyle photographer, visual director, landscape photo maker, and director of art, but it’s important to note that I bring something extra that you won’t find on a simple resume.
