I grew up in Florida and after graduating college, I moved to the North Shore of Oahu. I had always loved photography, but something about Hawaii made me even more obsessed. After three years there honing my skills, I moved to California to pursue surf photography. I interned at Surfer Magazine for the summer and then kind of fell into a marketing job at Billabong where I worked for over 13 years as the women's Global Sports marketing Manager. I then went on to be Editor in Chief at the women's surf lifestyle magazine, Herewith, where I was able to combine my passions in women's surfing and photography to help  create several print magazines and web content along with a talented and creative team of inspiring women.

I have been privileged to travel the world to some of the most beautiful destinations with the Billabong surf and snow teams and have been able to take photos of my experiences along the way. Photography is a passion of mine and enables me to capture what I have seen along the way and cherish it for years.

I moved to Maui from California with my family in May of 2020 to live more simply and pursue my photography and other creative outlets.
