I first discovered my love for photography in the darkroom at Northwest College. While I was not a photography major, my Agriculture Communications degree required the Intro to Photography course. I was fortunate enough to have to use a darkroom to develop my own film. When I was in the darkroom for the first time watching my professor develop prints, it was like magic to me. After a few days of my own developing, the darkroom became a magical place that gave me peace and made moments come to life. During this time, I did not think of taking photography to the next level. My professors encouraged me to stick to photography, because I have a unique eye to see what others don't. I recieved my Masters of Fine Arts in Photography from the Academy of Art University.

While photographing on the side, I run and operate the family sheep ranch. We raise Columbia sheep and Natural Colored sheep. I have my PRCA Photographers Card (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) and now besides traveling to ranches, I travel to PRCA rodeos to capture 8 seconds at a time.

I am an adjunct photography professor at Western Wyoming Community College, where I teach digital photography and black and white film photography.
