I love to read them, tell them, and especially document them through my camera. My passion and enthusiasm for stories is why I turned to photography professionally. Everybody has a story. These iconic photographers inspire me everyday - Alfred Stieglitz, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Eugene Smith, and my all-time favorite Vivian Maier. Pick any one of them, google them, and you will be opened up to a whole new world of story telling.

21. That's how many photo albums I have on my bookshelf right now.
32. That's how many photography books I have scattered throughout my house that I look at daily for inspiration.

Stories happen everyday and the beauty I see in people, places, and things, truly become works of art when seen through my lens.

Let me tell your story!
