About

When I was young, most of my time was spent with my head in a book or outside creating imaginary worlds and characters. At 16, I was given my first camera and fell in love with capturing the world through my lens. At 18, I left home in Oregon for New York to study acting at NYU. My first big break was on the soap opera As The World Turns and I continued to work as an actor through my 20's in a mix of T.V., Film, and Broadway.

Throughout, I never stopped shooting, and at 30, I was lucky enough to land an internship with Annie Leibovitz. I knew then that I wanted to be a photographer. As an Aussie citizen via my parents, I leapt at the chance for a life-altering experience and moved to Australia to study at RMIT. It was three years of bliss, studying the greats, learning my craft, and shooting all day.

After graduation, I moved back to NY to start working as an editorial portrait photographer, all the while knowing one day I would end up back in Australia. As my life and family changed and grew, so did my interest and focus, shifting to photographing children. Their joy, their authenticity, their sense of wonder, and their spontaneity is irresistible and infectious.

I work with a great people who care as much as I do, and we have the best time.

I love my work.
