One part photographer. One part cook. One part thrill-seeker--All tied up with an undeniable passion for life's many gifts.
Born and raised in a little southern Kansas town, I grew up with a big yard, a lot of animals, a little brother and many adventures-- Now experiencing life in Los Angeles, where the adventures continue--
I drink good whiskey, I eat great food, I love amazing people. My insatiable appetite for more has propelled me into experiences that only my wildest dreams could have predicted. I shoot what makes me happy. Food stuffs, food personalities, lifestyle and travel. With a strong belief that beauty lies in simplicity and that the magic is in the details.
Daily inspiration comes from everything remarkable. Joyful people, fluffy farm animals, brass pots, the color of the sky, black and white gelatin prints, paper, my brother, running with no specific destination, amazing chefs, farmers markets, thrift stores, far away places, cookbooks, cheesy motels, craft stores, films. Dozens of tattered, stained, scribbled notepads bounce around inside my many many handbags. All covered in thoughts, notes, inspirations, pictures, doodles, names, places, titles, ideas. I keep them all.
I learn more than I teach, I smile more than I scowl, I'm loud more than I'm quiet, I run more than I walk, I look forward more than backward, I'm frank more than I'm coy, I cook more than I reheat, I work hard and play hard
Anything exciting, beautiful, shiny, new, old. I love it all.
