South Lake Tahoe, California
I was compelled to tell stories of humans interacting with themselves, the planet, and their emotions in 2012 when I picked up my first camera. Telling these stories has become the most impactful force in my life. I grew up in the high mountains of California, instantly awestruck to the eerie and mysterious force that attracts us to these places. Why do we feel the drive to expend ourselves to a challenge, to a summit, or to new experiences? I’m drawn to a calumniation of filmmaking, compelling photography, and brand assent creation to explain what it is like to be simply human.
