The Story So Far...


I have always had a connection to art. When I was a kid most of my free time was spent doing arts and crafts of some kind, and avoiding anything that involved hand eye coordination. In high school I was short an elective and reluctantly ended up in yearbook where I was handed my first DSLR. I was instantly hooked and found myself volunteering to cover various school events. 

I graduated university in 2015 with a Bachelor's degree and the sense I had wasted a great deal of time and energy over the course of 5 years. I studied Sociology and Gender Studies in the hopes of finding a way to create meaningful change in the lives of those around me and society at large, but ultimately left school with many more questions then answers. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed my time at Carleton University and value the education I have, but I was left feeling unsatisfied with where I was going in my professional life. 

I took a few years off, worked in a cafe and saved some money. Working in an environment with actors, artists and performers relit the artistic fire in me and I applied to photography school on a whim. 

After I was accepted to the Algonquin College Photography Program, I decided to find a way to fuse my interest of social issues and art together to find my niche in the industry and hopefully create a positive impact on my community. 

Lately I have been particularly interested in documenting groups of people with a single commonality. For my final portfolio, I have decided to document Millennials (generation y) our culture. 

I am proud of how far I have come in pursuing my passions and can't wait to see how my style will evolve and grow. I would love to connect to like-minded people in the Ottawa area and see how we can develop our interests together. Reach out to me at or via my connect page if you would like to contact me!
