"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and do that. Because what the world really needs is people who have come alive."
- If the thing that makes you come alive is a part of your business plan, then you are in the right place.
- If you are a handmade business owner that is determined and committed to making a living from your store, then you are in the right place.
- If you know that stellar imagery and visuals are the backbone of a successful online shop presence, then you are in the right place.
- If you are ready to take your product photography skills to the next level, harness the creative potential of your store, and use its success to go fiercely after whatever makes you come alive, then you are in the right place. Let's do this!

A little more about me...
In 2012 I graduated from Columbia College Chicago where I studied both film and digital Photography. Though my focus in school was primarily Fine Art, after graduating I worked for NATIVE Magazine in Nashville, TN where I fell in love with ad and product photography and never looked back. I now live in Eugene, Oregon where I work as the Photographer and Creative Specialist for Mountain Rose Herbs. When I'm not behind the camera you're likely to find me playing pool, studying plant medicine, and exploring the magical Pacific Northwest.
