How did you get into the industry?

I built and operated the photography studio at my old company (The Barcode Group), but then they decided to downsize their creative team, and now I am marketing myself as a freelance talent. How exciting!

What inspires you?

I'm inspired by all of the talented people I surround myself with. When my team wins, it pushes me to want to win as well!

What is your hometown?

Plymouth MN

Favorite restaurant?

Birch's on the Lake

What do you like to do on the weekends?

I like to hang out with my friends, and take pictures.

What is your favorite band or type of music?

I like most kinds of music, but my favorites have to be Funk and Soul

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

""Comparison is the thief of joy" -Theodore Roosevelt" -Someone that isn't Teddy Roosevelt

What book, movie read/seen recently you would recommend and why?

I recently watched Peanut Butter Falcon for the first time, and loved it! I just thought it was a beautiful story about two people on very different yet parallel paths in life, and how they make the most of their journey together.

Are you a traveler or a homebody? Why?

Depends on the day! But lately I've wanted to get out and about more than I have in the past.
