Ever since I can remember, I have loved to tell stories. What better way to tell a story than through photography and video? Capturing a smile, a special moment or an event provides an opportunity for the subjects to relive and share their experience.
Photography has always been my passion, but I have made a living in video. After studying broadcast journalism at Illinois State University, I began my career in Central Illinois – creating commercials and on-air promotions for local television affiliates. From 2008 to 2012, I had the incredible opportunity of working at The Marketing Store, where I created content for clients such as McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, and Southern Comfort. I grew tremendously in my tenure at The Marketing Store and really tapped into my creativity. Currently, I work for Maddock Douglas, an innovation consulting firm, and I am once again utilizing my skills, maximizing my creative potential and accepting new challenges daily.
Throughout my career, talented friends and great mentors have surrounded me. I have been fortunate to wake up every day never feeling like I was going to work. The combination of my professional experience, personality and drive to improve has given me a unique perspective from behind the lens.
Over the years, I have traveled the country capturing client-sponsored events, weddings, and workshops. It is a combination of work and life that inspires me.
