I create images and capture moments.
Lives In East Bayside
I photograph with an eye for beauty and emotion, collecting images and capturing moments. I have worked for the past 15 years as both a fine art and commercial photographer, specializing in fashion, portraits and weddings. My photographs are elegant, lovely and timeless. Stop by my new studio located in East Bayside at 145 Anderson Street. If the door is locked, I am likely off playing in the mountans, riding my bike or swimming in the ocean
Why did you choose Portland? I chose to live in Portland because I l o v e Portland!
Who are Portlanders you admire and why? Barbara Corey of Corey & Company she has a lovely shop filled with her handmade gorgeous clothing! Katie and Jenny at Katie Made Bakery are among my favorite people, hardworking with a high standard. Kathleen and Will Pratt roast coffee all day long across the street from my studio, best latté in town.
What do you like to do with out-of-towners? I take out of towner's to Tandem Coffee, Standard Bakery and Bunker Brewing, in that order.
Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Fish Point is magical. It's the eastern most tip of Portland peninsula, where the rocks meet the ocean, accessible only at low tide.
What's the most surprising thing about this city? I'm amazed that if you wonder out on a cold dark night in the middle of winter you are very likely to stumble upon amazing food, poetry, music, conversation.... you never know what to expect.
What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? The tuna roll at Miyake... delicious.
I love exploring, entertaining, laughing, connecting with people, and getting my hands dirty.
I teach strength, empowerment and self expression through movement with Dance, Buti and Yoga.
I write fiction, short stories, and poetry. Lately, it's mostly haiku inspired by what I dream about at night.
