I grew up in Eastern Washington going to the traveling BANFF mountain film festival every year, and I knew I wanted to tell stories like that somehow. Through photography, I was able to channel my curiosity and explore new ideas and stories. I will always practice photography, and I hope to always be working on some personal project at all times, but strategy is where I have found a career and a drive to uncover new exciting ideas. Storytelling is at the heart of all great advertising, and as a strategist I have been able to find and tell meaningful consumer stories.
Note: I look terrible in the photo because I had just finished my first ultra marathon and let’s just say it went rough. I am hoping the next one goes better. But as a photographer I rarely have photos taken of me, so I grabbed this one.
