About Me

I am a freelance photographer, filmmaker, artist, and creative living and working in Chicago, IL.

Originally from the metro Detroit area, I moved to Chicago in 2010 to attend the interdisciplinary BFA program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).
After studying Photography, Filmmaking, and Experimental Media I graduated in 2014, and have since been working as a freelance creative. I continue to work on long-term personal creative projects aside from client work.

I have a passion for creating bespoke, interesting, and visually stunning content. Each cocktail, person, band, piece of art, music video, or space must be treated as an opportunity to create. Certain projects benefit from using film instead of digital to set themselves apart, so I offer the option of 35mm, Medium Format, or Polaroid as alternatives to digital capture on shoots.

For information about my rates, process, availability, or to start a conversation, please contact me below.
I work locally, nationally, and internationally. Let’s not let distance be a barrier to collaborating on your next project.
