Who am I? I am a Missouri girl with a drive to do. I am recent graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism (BJ & MA), currently living and working in the lovely Gateway to the West. This charismatic Disney lover enjoys exploring new places, binging on Netflix (but what do I do now that Doctor Who is gone?!) and testing out if BuzzFeed's Tasty really works. I'm looking for my next big adventure (which hopefully includes coffee, some food photography and amazing people).
What drives me? My photography is guided by my passion for experiences. Food, travel and stories are my game and I end up eating quite well and traveling often because of it. Life is best spent with no regrets and my work captures that beauty. Whether that's on the Dingle Peninsula of Ireland or in a local St. Louis restaurant.
Who knows me? I am proud to work and have worked with the best in the business: dedicated Columbia Missourian photo team, SPJ National Award winning Vox Magazine editorial and art staff, members of the FleishmanHillard ContentWorks team, beloved global operations like Steak 'n Shake, and even my own kitchen/studio.
Overall My heart and lens belong to the story.
