I am a 24 year old Atlanta, Ga native, currently working on earning my BFA in Photographic Imaging from the Art Institute of Atlanta. I am very excited because in December of this year I will be graduating and jumping head first into the industry! I come from a family of very talented artists and creative spirits. Growing up they encouraged my love of art and always let me explore the world with an artistic outlook, so when I picked up a camera at a young age my family jumped on board! My father bought me my first SLR, a Pentax ZX30 35mm and asked me to start photographing his band when they played out. It was the beginning of what was to become my passion in life. Since then I have explored many aspects of the industry from darkroom processing to digital illustration. When it comes down to it, if I am creating, I am happy!
