Photography has been an interest of mine for as long as I can remember. It started with my uncle and grandmother, both of whom would meticulously photograph every family event they attended.
In high school, when I was attempting to figure out what to go to college for, I decided that I wanted to do something that would allow me to explore the world around me and to tell the stories of the people I met.
I attended Ball State University, where I served as the photo editor of the award-winning Ball State Daily News, graduating with a bachelor's degree in photojournalism.
From there, I moved to Nebraska City to work as a reporter and photographer for the Nebraska City News-Press.
After some time in Nebraska, I was contacted by a friend in Kentucky and asked to apply for a job at the State Journal in Frankfort, where I would eventually become a photographer.
I currently work as a freelance photographer. I have worked for the State Journal, the Lexington Herald-Leader, the Louisville Courier-Journal and Getty Images.
