I was born into the expansive vistas of Saskatchewan in 1981. At a very early age I learned that I loved art and new that I wanted to have a career in a creative field.
In 2001 I relocated to Vancouver BC where I continued drawing and painting, playing music and skateboarding.
As I hungered to see more and be inspired anew, I headed to Paris, France to see what life in Europe had to offer. A good friend took me to the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation one summer afternoon in 2007, and so began my profound love for the camera. While in Europe I began shooting abandoned spaces in France and Belgium and carried my camera everywhere I travelled. Paris became my personal photography school, where I shot anything and everything.
After returning to Vancouver in 2009 where inspired by legends Cecile Beaton, Helmut Newton and Solve Sundsbo, I began experimenting with studio photography which lead me to my current work in fashion and beauty photography.
