Hi! I have loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember, going back to a green plastic point-and-shoot, which took 35mm film, that I got in first grade. Back then, I took images with the sole intent of capturing memories. There are many moments in life that will only come around once, and preserving and cherishing those memories has always been important to me. In 2009, while a student at Dartmouth College, I got my first SLR camera, and began exploring the world of images I could make with it. I discovered I could make images that were pleasing to look at, as well as capturing memories. This fusion of capturing moments and creating art is what inspires my photography to this day.
