I am a photographer, an adventurer, a journalist, a knitter, a fiddler, a skier, a dancer, an explorer, a filmmaker, a baker, a keener, a klutz, a questioner, a reader, a mountain climber, a volunteer, a writer, a traveler, and so much more.

I’m currently in Winnipeg living the dream as a photojournalist at the Winnipeg Free Press. I graduated from the SAIT photojournalism program in 2015, and worked in the newsrooms of major Canadian dailies before expanding into multimedia.  My work has been featured online/in print in the Globe and Mail, Maclean’s, the Winnipeg Free Press, the Calgary Herald, Alberta Views Magazine, and more.

Exploring, being engaged, and creating visual content is a very physical process for me.  I love adventures, no matter what form – learning new things, going new places, and meeting new people every single day is the reason that I pretty much always have a huge grin on my face.

Some days I pinch myself because I can’t believe that all of this is what I call work.
