About Me

I am an American sports and travel photojournalist currently roaming the world following my passion for surfing and traveling to exotic places with good food. In 2016 I graduated from the University of Denver with a Bachelor’s degree in Geography and Geographic Information Systems. While at the University of Denver, I was the photography editor at the DU Clarion, where I covered NCAA sports on campus including hockey, soccer and gymnastics, as well as news In and around Denver. 

After traveling, working, and finding an extreme love for surfing and all things watery, I moved to Edinburgh, Scotland in 2018 to complete a master’s degree in Journalism at Edinburgh Napier University. 

In the future, I want to continue to follow my passions for photography, surfing, traveling, and motorsports by telling untold stories through compelling visuals and text. 

For hire, anywhere in the world.
