Professional Profile

I am a collaborative team-player with extensive experience as a lead photographer. My multitasking and supervisory abilities enable me to effectively manage and direct large crews. I work directly with my clients to keep assignments on schedule and budget. In addition to utilizing my skills as a photographer, I enjoy sharing my experience through teaching and mentorship of newer photographers and assistance in the field. I love to learn from those around me and I encourage a collaborative working environment.

My personal work focuses on adventure sports, as I enjoy most things that get me outside. I find my outdoor activities push me both physically and mentally to go beyond what I think is possible. Trying new things and exploring the world around us keeps me creative and energized.

Professional Experience

Freelance Photographer

2014-Present

I am constantly searching for new and creative clients to collaborate with. Arial productions have become more essential to my personal work as I perfect my drone flight and video skills for my outdoor adventures. A new passion of mine has become rock climbing, allowing me to reach new and creative angles for my work. This has also taught me rope skills and rigging in some remote and dangerous places, keeping myself, equipment and participants safe.
