Growing up in Homer, Alaska, I’ve always been surrounded by beauty. I didn’t quite realize what I had until I left for college in Minnesota, where I earned a biology degree. Upon my return to Alaska, I fell in love with the landscapes and wildlife around me. Eager to capture and share Alaska’s natural wonders through my photography, I spent more time exploring the Kenai Peninsula’s wilds. My hobby eventually transformed into a full-time job after becoming more established as a photo guide, freelancer, and artist.
