After graduating from WSU with a BA in interior design, I held onto the basic principles and elements of design and shifted my focus to photography.  Through my life experiences I have developed a strong passion for photography and have enjoyed integrating it into my current lifestyle.   I enjoy exploring each phase of the process and watching how it all comes together to create that final image that makes my heart sing.  My love for the built environment, combined with my love of photography, has created an exciting career in architectural photography that I find myself enjoying more and more with each shoot.
