I graduated from Northwest Technical College with a diploma in graphic design. I started working in a local photography studio as a graphic artist/backup photographer. After almost 6 years of experience there, I left and started my own business of photography. I have always been drawn to photography and what it offers people. When I was younger, I would always list my dream job as a person who travels the world and takes pictures of it. I enjoy capturing those images that need to be recorded in life. I'm also currently teaching Photography at Minnesota State Technical College.
I volunteer at Operation Photo Rescue (Retouching photographs of Natural Disaster victims.) I am a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) I serve as Vice President of the Fargo-Moorhead Camera Club and I'm a member of the Northwest Professional Color Camera Club.
