My father was born just south of Tillamook County, Oregon. Thirty something years later, he made the difficult decision to move far away to just north of Tillamook county to provide a better life for his family. Now, Tillamook County is famous for one thing, and one thing only, and that’s their cheese. I hope to change that. I love cheese. I love cinematography. As I child, I loved drawing, writing, and imagining stories that reached far beyond what I was capable of making. That is, at the time. As I moved into my teen years, I discovered a passion for cameras. All things camera. I was fascinated by how they worked and how different lenses create different looks. The way still and motion photography told stories encapsulated me. As time drew on, I knew that I needed to express my voice, not in words, but through emotions told by the imagery of the world. I'm a director of photography, I can only see the world through the lens of a camera. I'm going take what I thought was only a wonder as a child, and make my reality into those dreams.
