“You only are free when you realize you belong no place — you belong every place — no place at all.” -Maya Angelu

I am an international award winning travel and documentary photographer who works with families whom are conscious and invested in capturing their experiences as they unfold. Through my work, I chronicle the moments that make us who we are.

My biggest influences and admiration are photojournalists such as Alegra Ally & Ash Gilbertson

I was born in a small town in Northwestern Ontario, and I have lived in every corner of the province since. I have no hometown, I have no sewn roots. My style is influenced by my constant need for exploration and adventure, big or small.

I now live in a small city north of Toronto called Barrie, Ontario. I do life alongside my steadfast partner with our three amazing little humans. We enjoy exploring the world with adventure and curiosity in mind.
