I'm a laid-back, experienced and versatile photographer who loves capturing images that tell a story. Whether I'm covering a news event or your vacation, I strive to make interesting, beautiful and intimate images. With every photo shoot, my goal is to have fun with my subjects and, most importantly, make you feel comfortable. I mainly work for magazines and newspapers photographing documentary projects, news and editorial portraits. I've won numerous local and national awards from news and wedding organizations like the National Press Photographers Association, The Knot and Wedding Wire.
- I love road biking, reading and exploring new breweries and brews.
- One thing I can't live without is my camera!
- Though I hail from Wisconsin and consider myself a cheesehead (yes, I do own one of those foam cheeseheads you've seen at Packers games), I do not, in fact, like cheese.
