Grand Rapids, MI, United States

I am a native Grand Rapidian who enjoys everything outdoors. My journey into photography started in 2017, and ever since my passion has been taking photographs that show Mother Nature’s true beauty, the cities I roam and the people I have met.  □ This passion for photography has fueled my desire to travel to distant lands in order to tackle new challenges and to size up landscapes I once only saw in magazines. During the last two years I have stood next to 200 foot waterfalls in Iceland, watched the sun set over rolling waves on the Pacific, explored caves in Arizona that look like another world... and the next day was pricked by a cactus in the desert. My adventures have allowed me to look down onto cites below from the top of mountains in Colorado. On the contrary, I have looked up to watch the dreamy Aurora Borealis dance high above in Alaska.  □ Michigan has my heart and is my home, so I continue to do a great deal of landscape photography here. I have had projects in places all over representing companies such as Allegiant Air, Experience Grand Rapids, Verizon, and Coca Cola with Pure Michigan. It has always been a thrill to see some of my images published. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an ad I saw on a small phone screen while scrolling on social media, the cover of a magazine or on a giant billboard. I am a dreamer, explorer and creator— but, the best part is I’m just getting started!
