I am an award-winning conservation photographer, writer, video editor & sound designer living in the Colorado front range. I specialize in creating purposeful content that puts a spotlight on our interactions with wildlife and environment with an emphasis on co-existence. 
 I have a graduate certificate in Conservation Communications from Colorado State University and a BS in Multimedia Communications from Metropolitan State University. In addition, I studied at Austin School of Photography and at the Conservation Storyteller Academy.  I worked in the video game industry for over 20 years in a variety of roles including Audio Director, Sound Designer, Composer and Producer. My passion for nature and wildlife has led me to pivot my focus towards using my multimedia skills to educate and inspire action on environmental issues.
I am a member of the North America Nature Photography Association (NANPA), Nature First and a certified Texas Master Naturalist. I also follow a strict code of ethics when photographing and filming wildlife. 
My images have been published in National Wildlife Magazine, PetaPixel, Colorado Outdoors Magazine, The Purple Martin Update and the Hill Country Conservancy Calendar among others. 
In addition to photography, I am a skilled audio & video editor that has worked on a multitude of podcast episodes for Rewildology and TikTok content for Prairie Dogs 101 group
Through my work, I hope to tell stories that engage people on the importance of ethical interactions with wildlife and the environment. With my passion for conservation and expertise in multimedia, I am dedicated to making a positive impact in the world with ethical photography and media.
