who i am, generally speaking

my work

As an artist, photographer and writer, I find myself gravitating toward the narrative and looking for a story within every person I encounter and destination I explore. Everyone has a unique story worth telling, whether it's building a brewery from the ground up, celebrating a milestone, coming together for a special family reunion or simply selling fruit at a farmer's market. 

I love to travel, meet new people and gain and understanding of worlds and cultures I've never known. I enjoy being a fly on the wall, observing and capturing life's simple and quiet moments because real life and beauty tends to be in the unexpected. And I live for capturing the big moments, such as the birth of a child or a celebration of love.

biography

If I had to sum it up, I'd describe myself as a photographer, mixed media artist, ceramicist and maker.

In addition to my photography, I am the owner of Tour de Frances, which is where you'll find my fine art and handmade goods. I am also ingrained in the local maker community and regularly participate in artist markets.

I received my BS from The University of Texas at Austin in Public Relations and Advertising, and a BA in Visual Arts and Creative Writing at the University of Texas at Dallas. I work out of and reside in Northeast Dallas with my partner Joe, our cat Dexter, and two dogs and travel companions, Nina and Marty McFly.


what i do in life

lifestyle photography

I most enjoy telling stories and capturing pure and honest moments. I photograph newborns, mommies-to-be, seniors, families, holidays, reunions, milestone birthdays, lovebirds, weddings, you name it. Sometimes I bring goldfish for the kiddos. Contact me for lifestyle and wedding rates.

narrative photography

My specialty is documentary photography, where I focus on people, places, events, cultures and communities in both significant and everyday settings. I have a particular love for "day in the life" and birth stories, which offer an intimate glimpse into life's most beautiful moments.

commercial + product

My background and training
in fine art, design and fashion/retail guides my passion for commercial and product photography and gives my clients a unique aesthetic. I also provide head shots, company and environmental photos. Contact me for commercial rates.

fine art

My experience and formal education in painting, mixed media, printmaking and creative writing also plays a crucial role in who I am as a photographer. I bring my fine art background and in-depth knowledge of art and design with me everywhere I go as inspiration.


get in touch

I'm always happy to chat, grab a beer, share ideas and talk about the meaning of life. And of course I'm available for lifestyle, narrative, commercial and wedding photography. Please contact me for rates.

I'm located in Dallas, Texas, but am more than happy to travel to just about anywhere in the world.
