I am a multimedia artist working freelance in Portland, OR. My work is often collaborative which has taught me to invest in my community. Currently my images feature people; artists, musicians, dancers, creators and friends. I enjoy creating with people who follow their passion. My style is colorful and proud and I strive to represent authentic emotions and relationships. With over ten years of experience I have learned how to hold space and get thorough coverage.
I have a deep affinity for music. I’ve played music since I was in middle-school. Music theory informs my video editing. Hearing separate instruments within a song helps me stage choreography and articulate movement. My love of music taught me to pay attention to how people absorb sound. Some calmly breathe it in and others explode with expression. Dance and musical performance are my favorite subjects. Even when the project is something else, I usually have music playing during photo shoots.
Collaboration is a key part of my process. I want to get to know someone’s motivation and inspirations. Understanding someone’s perspective allows us both to take pride in the work we are creating. I want people to feel honestly represented in the final images.
