I am passionate and meticulous--not only behind the lens but when telling stories--I was born two months early in Salt Lake City, Utah and I haven't slowed down since. My passion for digital imaging has pushed me into the realm of professional photography...a place I only dreamed of finding myself.  I was drawn to photography at an early age and I've practiced it as a hobby for over ten years. A couple of years ago, a friend loaned me a copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements and offered to teach me a few tricks.  The encouraging words of that same friend, a couple of training sessions, and loads of dedication helped me make the transition into the realm of fine art and professional photography.  Although I graduated with a Bachelor's in Physical Education from Utah State University, I couldn't resist the adventure that awaited me by taking a career detour with just a Nikon D70 and kit lens in hand.
