about me

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to check out my editorial photojournalism work.

I am based in Columbia, MO from September through June, and am available for freelance assignments of all kinds. Please shoot me an email, or give me a call (573.356.6721) if you’re looking for a photographer in the Midwest.

Although I love newspaper work, and recently left my job as a staff photographer for the Concord Monitor in NH, I now spend my time photographing vintage inspired weddings in New England – and rustic and DIY weddings in Missouri.

I have an undergraduate degree in Fisheries & Wildflife, and I’ve completed my masters of photojournalism coursework, both from the University of Missouri in Columbia.  I have won numerous state and national awards and gained experience at a variety of wonderful newspapers across the country.

I smile a lot, have a mild obsession with great danes, and love what I do!
