What is it like living in Seattle?

I have been living in Seattle for about 2 months now and I couldn’t be happier. This city is booming, and it’s a big change from the small town I came from in Colorado in a good way. The art and music scene is killer, I’ve met plenty of amazing people already and the mountain ranges around here are unreal. Very excited to get out and do some exploring! 

What gets you out of bed every morning?

Life, it’s really good. Getting up to spend the day creating the future I want is very rewarding to me.

When did you pick up photography?

I bought my first DSLR at a pawn shop in 2014. I would go out occasionally to shoot my friends skateboarding or landscape photos, but it wasn’t until just this last year that photography became a major part of my life. I made some close friends who share the same passion for photography which has been one of the biggest things that has fueled my hunger to shoot all the time.       

Where is your favorite place to adventure to?

Lake Agnes in Colorado, hands down. Everyone has their spot that gives them a feeling of joy you can’t really put into words; that is mine. 

What’s Next?

I would really like to start dabbling with a more abstract approach to my medium by blending graphic design elements into my photography.
