Hi there! I'm currently a student at Columbus College of Art and Design in my final semester where I've recently shifted gears to focus on conservation and environmental issues. Previously, I took photos of flowers solely because they would make an aesthetically pleasing image, but as I've come to care more and more about the environment and its inhabitants, I've found there needs to be something else behind my work. There has to be a message - whether it's to reconsider the animals on your plate or to educate the viewer about the endangered Karner Blue Butterfly in Ohio and the challenges its facing - I aim to use photography to advocate change.
I make my bed in Columbus, Ohio at the moment, but my adventure-loving spirit is prepared to take me anywhere and everywhere! I stay true to reality with minimal post-processing in the form of minor exposure adjustments to protect the integrity of the subject.
Oh, and I write fiction, too!
