Gift from the Universe
This night was a Gift from the Universe by way of galactic activity we don't often get to se. I feel fortunate that not only did I get a chance to admire and photograph the comet Neowise in July, 2020, but the visit from Lady Aurora was an added bonus. It was the shot of a lifetime, and even more so when it was published by National Geographic a few weeks later. When I saw the glow of the aurora borealis on the horizon to the north the energy revived me, as the northern lights always do, even when it's just a soft appearance. The best part was on this night it happened at one of my favorite places, Little Point Sable Light, Mears, MI.

What I Can Do For You
Need a Social Media influencer? I have taken photos and posted stories of vacation destinations on behalf of Allegiant Air in Florida and worked on a collaboration for Verizon in Grand Rapids. I can help your brand's social media platform, while at the same time delivering you high quality photos for future advertising.

As I embrace photography and choose to go to places that inspire me, I strive to take photos that make you part of my picture. I want the image to make you feel as if you are actually walking into that space with me. The goal of my art is to not only show my audience that I dream in reality, but more importantly that they can too.
I am a native Grand Rapidian who enjoys everything outdoors. My journey into photography started in 2017, and ever since my passion has been taking photographs that show Mother Nature’s true beauty, the cities I roam and the people I have met.
This passion for photography has fueled my desire to travel to distant lands in order to tackle new challenges and to size up landscapes I once only saw in magazines. During the last three years I have stood next to 200 foot waterfalls in Iceland, watched the sun set over rolling waves on the Pacific, explored caves in Arizona that look like another world... and the next day was pricked by a cactus in the desert. My adventures have allowed me to look down onto cites below from the top of mountains in Colorado to looking up watching the dreamy Aurora Borealis dance high above in Alaska.
Michigan has my heart and is my home, so I continue to do a great deal of landscape photography here. I have had projects in places all over representing companies such as Allegiant Air, Experience Grand Rapids, Verizon, Coca Cola with Pure Michigan and published by National Geographic. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an ad I saw on a small phone screen while scrolling on social media, the cover of a magazine or on a giant billboard. I am an explorer and creator and position myself so I Dream in Reality—but, the best part is I’m just getting started!
I bought myself an early Christmas present... a metal print as a memento of an awesome personal achievement that happened this year. • Often times in the captions on my photo pages I write about the universe. The universe isn't necessarily about about the galaxy per say; rather, it's a state of mind and ideology I have tried to embrace these last few years. Photography has helped me understand that and in return has brought forth many wonderful opportunities and people into my life. I find it fitting, and exhilarating, that National Geographic chose two of my photos showcasing the actual universe, in all its glory, being lit up with the beautiful aurora borealis to publish. Even more fitting is one of the photos was taken at a very special place to me, Little Sable Point Light. • That caption was written on August 4th, the day it was published. I feel even more so today.
