Bio


Hailing from Colorado, I am passionate, adventurous, and deeply drawn to travel, art and the outdoors.


I am currently working in commercial/lifestyle photography for outdoor brands, creating imagery for marketing and story-telling, as well as pursuing human and environmental advocacy throughout my work. I'm joined by my two side-kicks, Kodi and Kuma; I seek to include them in my life as much as I can, they inspire me to seek out adventure wherever I go, as well as to seek deep connection with the Earth/nature.

How has iKamper changed the way you think about adventure? I'm not sure it has changed the way I think about adventure, but it has changed *how* I adventure. I feel a bit more free knowing my home is wherever we are.


Best/Worst Camping Story:  I don't really have a "worst" camping story; of course things have gone wrong while camping, but I usually live by the fact that misfortunes make memories, even when I've been frustrated, things usually turn out ok and I can laugh about it later!


Where you can find me on my day off: Wherever my soul is drawn to; could be the ocean, the desert, a mountain top or at home with Kodi and Kuma.
