My photographs are inspired by dominant themes, emotions, and relationships that take form and develop in my life. I photograph my surroundings: the motion, form, and spirit behind rich images that comprise my visual world. The relationship to my photographic subjects constantly intrigues me. I strive to find the shots where everything converges and works together. Where my personal theme/emotion, the subject itself, the moment with me behind the camera, and the aesthetics of the shot all intersect. And where some piece of me is tangible in the final photograph.

I am an independent photographer and studied at the Academy of Applied Photography (Herman Herzele) in Graz, Austria. 

I am currently located in Portland, Oregon & would love to connect with you!
