About

I’m a freelance photographer living and working in the Central Arkansas Area. I  grew up in Sherwood and have lived most of my life in Arkansas including Hot Springs, Keiser and Bryant.   I am the Weddings Editor at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, and work for the Features Department, taking photos and writing stories for High Profile. I am a 2008 graduate of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a bachelor’s degree in studio art / emphasis in photography. I went back to school as an adult while working full time and raising a family.  I have since exhibited in various regional juried shows and group exhibitions.
