I look for the untapped potential in the people I meet, loving them and helping them grow through an understanding of who they are, using the tools of psychology and philosophy. I also love nature, originality, and creativity. I express that love through my photography.
I was born in Columbia, Missouri, USA to a young couple who were learning how to navigate life. I share my hometown with my father, one of eight kids born to intelligent and hardworking parents, while my mother was born into a half-Italian family of five in St. Louis. Family played a big role in my upbringing, which included visits to see my three grandparents and holidays with extended family.
