About Me

A love for natural light and capturing memories led me to pursue photography as a hobby over ten years ago. I learned so much on my own, training with professionals in the field, and coursework, that I made the transition from a hobbyist to a professional photographer. My time as an undergraduate student at Columbia University enabled me to work with wonderful people across New York City for portraits, events, dance & music performances, and graduation photos. While I have since graduated, moved to Washington D.C. for (non-photo-related) work, and slowed down shooting, I still on occasion take on projects in the DC-area, New York, and California.
