You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
— Ansel Adams

I am a portrait photographer based out of Northern California. Since the beginning of my photographic journey in 2012, I have admired a photographer's innate sense of just the right moment to freeze time and create an image of beauty and light. When I'm not behind the camera, I am pursuing continuing my academic career in field of ethology and animal behavior.
