I'm an independent photographer and filmmaker living in Los Angeles (originally from Chicago). I have a B.A. in Art & Design/Photography from Columbia College Chicago. After I graduated, I began studying acting/theater since it was something I always wanted to try.
Eventually, my acting experiences and various jobs on film sets led to a passion for writing and directing. This has been a wonderful experience since I love collaborating with others. Combining what I have learned from years of photography and acting (and even some substitute teaching) definitely prepared me for filmmaking.
When it comes to photography, I am always inspired by movies and music to incorporate a more cinematic quality to my work. Photography has really pushed me to be a more creative and adventurous person. No matter what other passions I explore, it will always feel the most special to me.
