The Short Version...
I love trying new things, meeting new people, and traveling to new places. And if I can write about the experience or photograph it? That's the sweet life. That's like sleeping in a bed made out of donuts.
The Long Version...
I’ve been obsessed with telling stories for as long as I can remember.
Originally trained as a journalist, I’ve worked as an editor and freelance writer for regional and national magazines. For years I wrote travel and adventure stories. And then something happened. I fell in love with photography. Big time. I started shooting the people and places around me. I took on some assignment work and eventually launched a small photography business.
Nowadays, I combine my love of writing and photography to create stories for others, whether they be editors, artists, local businesses, or families. In 2016, I founded This Vicarious Life, a personal project featuring short stories and day-in-the-life photo essays of people and their professions.
Have a story you’re ready to tell in words, photographs, or both? Let’s talk!
