Growing up in Southwestern Idaho, my access to the arts and culture were limited mostly to TV and radio with the occasional foray into macrame and sewing. I had a great love for all things creative and was generally thought of as an all around weird kid. I kept busy by enlisting my 5 brothers and sisters to star in my various attempts at film making. My version of Grease is legendary amongst a handful of people living in Idaho. I pursued music and enjoyed many years playing drums with various local bands.
After initially thinking I was going to be a rock star, I took a photography class as an elective. The moment I developed my first roll of film, I was hooked. I refocused my passion and eventually graduated from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California. I have lived and worked in New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago. I'm currently settled in Minneapolis. I spend my free time watching my youngest daughter grow up.
