Photography, for me, has always been about connecting with people in both familiar and new places. I started shooting seriously when I moved to Alaska after grad school. I worked in Denali National Park and had the great opportunity to learn photography in one the world's most beautiful parks. It was also there that I learned about the importance of preserving and respecting nature. The pulse behind my photography is the desire to give a similar experience to young people in need of a creative outlet while exploring the outdoors. Although I am in the beginning stages of this program, I would love for any input, ideas and thoughts regarding WILD WITHIN YOU(TH) .
