About

I'm a photographer, musician, and commercially licensed drone pilot based in Des Moines, IA but often traveling the world. I try to invest in projects that tell stories that move me & hopefully others as well. Whether that is photographing garment factories in Cambodia, backpacking to remote villages in Mexico, or spending a week at Westboro Baptist Church, my goal is to offer an honest and complex view of humanity. I've always had a knack for finding adventures that are off the beaten path & I'm not afraid to be on my feet 12 hours or lose sleep to find a beautiful view. Clients include Midwest Living Magazine, Houston City Magazine, Cedar Ridge Whiskey, Simple Kind Clothing, NPR, South China Morning Post, Oprah Magazine, Visit San Juans, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Contact me if you are interested in collaborating.
