I was born and raised in Watsonville, California (hello Martinelli’s apple juice!), and currently live in San Francisco.

I fell in love with photography when I took my first photography class in high school. I took a few other classes in college and at the now-defunct Rayko Photo Center (R.I.P.) in San Francisco. Ever since then, I’ve been learning more about photography by practicing art.

When I’m not photographing, I’m cooking up a delicious dish in the kitchen, tending to my growing houseplant collection, playing board games, making up words, or exploring the San Francisco Bay Area.
