I live in Seattle, and currently work as a research scientist for the University of Washington’s Alaska Salmon Program. For the past few years, I have enjoyed spending my free time as an independent nature photographer and filmmaker, employing creative techniques to document research, wildlife and landscapes in Alaska and Washington. I am interested in creating powerful and informative visuals to engage people in research topics and foster an appreciation for our environment and natural resources.

Feel free to contact me for more information.
