Lives In Downtown Portland
I am a modern tumbleweed. Born and raised in Missouri, I lived in Oregon for years and about a decade ago I blew into Portland, and I've been here ever since. Unlike those born in Maine, I chose to live here and, boy, am I glad I did!
The road to owning my own photography studio and business was a long and artistic one punctuated by success and constant striving. Drawing, painting, graphic design, illustration even some chalkboard designs for restaurants, eventually led me to the conceptual and artistic photography I do today.
I operate a photo studio out of Biddeford, and I've shown my work all over Portland. And what a welcoming city this is! The makeup artists, models, prop builders, hair stylists and other artists I've met through my projects have helped me create the signature look I'm so proud of today.
I can truly say I love Portland and now call it home. The resources, people and creative vibe here have helped me create some of my best work so far.
I collaborate with students, staff, faculty, and the community to make and keep USM environmentally sustainable
