I grew up in St. Louis, MO as the oldest of eight kids. I took up photography at the age of eight and started my own business by the age of seventeen. I have a bachelor of arts in English writing and business communication from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO. I like to think my style teeters the line of basic and hipster, with technical elegance. Quite simply, I’m distracted easily by bright colors and I like to make things pretty, like the things that distract me. I photographed New York Fashion Week in September of 2018, which was pretty much the coolest thing I’ve ever done. I was named an emerging American writer for my work in memoir writing by Z Publishing in August of 2018. I currently work as a marketing coordinator for eSpecial Needs.
