I grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota in the small town of Spearfish. Being surrounded by the natural environmental beauty impacted me early in life. I was propelled down a creative path, being influenced by my parents, teachers and friends and then found myself graduating from Moorhead State University with a BA in 2003 and a BFA in 2004. At first my creative efforts were put into use into a series of graphic design jobs. Eventually I was able to focus my talents on the creation of my photography career.
I’m a newlywed! I enjoy taking photos and creating arts and crafts projects. I’m native to the Twin Cities but recently bought a house in Hutchinson. I would eat Subway for every meal if I could and there’s a strong possibility that I have a sweet tooth. I have two cats and one of them has put me in the hospital three times from biting me. And I’m lucky enough to be allergic to sunscreen.
