As a senior in college, I studied abroad in London and stumbled upon photography with no artistic talent whatsoever. I’ve since visited 13 countries and developed a love for travel photography and a keen eye for light and architectural beauty.
While training to be an emergency physician at Mayo Clinic, I was awestruck with how one of my surgical attendings was able to capture his family with the same sense of elegance through light and shadow that I could do with a sunrise in Italy.
This admiration sent me on a quest to learn lighting to create amazing photos of our young children that would be much more than snapshots. A minimally compliant 2 year old only took me so far with learning flash, so I started to photograph friends and family and discovered how much I enjoy portraiture.
