Digitally crafted self portrait. I spent a spring afternoon lighting this backlit portrait of myself and collecting various flora from around my neighborhood, which I carefully arranged in order to equate the inner workings of myself to the exterior beauty found in my surroundings.

Northern California born and raised, I grew up skateboarding in the summer, snowboarding in the winter, and camping in the mountains as often as possible. I have my BFA in Cinematography and am currently working as a freelance Cinematographer and Photographer in Los Angeles. I spend my free hours traveling the Western United States– climbing mountains, perusing forests, beaches, and trekking through deserts. Always, I have a camera (or two) in hand.
