I am a landscape and architecture photographer based in Denver, CO since 2010. I enjoy the challenge of creating a unique composition that simplifies the world around me, allowing the viewer to experience what I was feeling at that point in time. I enjoy sharing my love of photography with others through workshops and presentations. This has led to me being asked to serve as president of local and state photography organizations. The artist community is amazing, it is so much fun building relationships with artists and collectors. So much fun in fact, that I opened my own brick and mortar gallery and began building a network of loyal artists and collectors from around the world.
