I am based in Denver and Salida, Colorado.
I am available to travel.
I am a Colorado-based portrait and lifestyle photographer and director. I love to work in the middle of the action, especially in agricultural, science, health, and technology industries. I value connection with others and being able to share their stories. I started my career as a documentary filmmaker (eventually earning a few awards, including an Emmy). This is likely why my still photography is often perceived as authentic and cinematic.
My friends describe me as a quiet but conscientious leader. I am a trusted problem solver for my clients and crew, and I never bring an ego to set.
Fun fact – I’ve been to 49 U.S. states multiple times (I just can’t seem to get to Alaska!) and 28 countries. I absolutely love playing, watching, and coaching sports, especially soccer. I also love to ski and roller skate.
