I am a photographer based out of Leucadia, California whose primary focus is to capture the relationship between the ocean and the animals and humans that thrive in it. I have a specific interest in the play of light and water, and the texture and colors that come from the intersection of the two. I have a  background in painting,  I tend to rely heavily on this training when composing photos. In shooting exclusively film, I have learned that intention and consideration are my greatest assets, especially when shooting something as dynamic as the ocean with a camera that takes 36 frames.

I am currently finishing a degree in marine biology at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and UC San Diego and hope to someday be able to use my photography to motivate  and inspire marine conservation efforts.
