"EVERYTHING YOU WANT IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF FEAR."

I graduated from Auburn University in 2014 (obligatory War Eagle!) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I wanted to study Graphic Design but fear (there's that word again...) of not being accepted into the program shifted my viewpoint. So, I went out into the "real world" and experienced teaching - from the late night crafts for the classroom, the giant 5-minute-long kid hugs (which are awesome), to the reprimanding of bad behaviors - I was miserable. Maybe this wasn't for me...
 

That's when I set fear aside and asked myself what made me happy. Truly happy.

The answer was photography.

I received my first DSLR camera for my sixteenth birthday (Thanks, Dad!) and a deep love and obsession took hold. Since then, I've put in countless hours of practice, experimentation, challenging new ideas, creative work, ongoing education, and most of all; enjoyment in what I do.
