ANY HOBBIES OR SPECIAL TALENTS?

Photography started out as a hobby and grew into a career. It allows me to meet so many amazing people and get to know them through photographing them. Aside from photography I just got back into dance and I also enjoy interior design and traveling.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?

I am a commercial and editorial portrait photographer.

WHAT DRIVES YOU?

I love what I do – my desire to meet people, create photos, and leave a lasting impact with my photography is what gets me up in the morning.

DO YOU WORK FROM HOME, AND IF SO, WHAT SPACE DO YOU USE AS A MAKESHIFT OFFICE?

I do work from home! I have a large bedroom and half of it is used as my office space.

DEFINE YOUR STYLE.

Clean, versatile, minimal, black.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE ART PIECES IN YOUR APARTMENT?

I have two city map posters of Denver and Chicago. I consider both those cities home. I got them from the Renegade Craft Fair a couple of years ago!

WHY CHICAGO?

I moved to Chicago for college and I haven't left yet! I truly love the people here, Chicago is so laid-back and friendly.

I JAM OUT TO ...

Pop Punk!

WHAT'S YOUR IDEAL ROAD TRIP?

A road trip across the US only using the back roads!

WHAT MOVIE PROP DO YOU WISH YOU OWNED?

The Golden Snitch from Harry Potter!

ON FRIDAY NIGHTS YOU CAN FIND ME...

Hanging on the porch with my friends or out at my favorite Chicago restaurants or cocktail bars.
