A: I have a BA in Photography (2005, summa cume laude, Texas A&M Commerce, Commerce, TX) and a MFA in Film Production (2007, Florida State University).  Additionally I apprenticed and trained with documentary and commercial photographers before entering the film world, and since receiving my degrees I have worked with and learned from Photographers and DPs around the world.  I have been working in Los Angeles full time as freelance artist in the Film/Photography Industry since 2010.

A: Yes, I have extensive long distance backcountry experience, some technical mountain training, and have spent months at a time living in the outdoors, working on both athletic and visual projects.  I can carry heavy loads over mountains, cook and care for myself, and put up with all sorts elements.


Q: Do you have interests outside of photography and film?

A: Ah yes!  I think investing time in diverse areas of life is a positive contribution to the creative thought process.  I spend lots of time cooking, hiking, reading, writing, learning to participate in various outdoor sports, advocating and researching sustainable lifestyles and agriculture, singing/playing instruments.
