I was born in Longmont, Colorado on February 14, 1993. I am a student at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. My major is BA Art & Design - Visual Communication Design (VCD). I am a freelance photographer and graphic designer. The majority of my photography work is Railroad Photography, but I also do landscapes and portraits. On my free time, I love enjoying the outdoors and traveling to new places. Living in Colorado enables me to explore many places in the great outdoors. Hiking is probably my favorite thing to do. I love spending time with family and friends as well.

Art became a part of me when I was really young. I would always start drawing random things. And they eventually became various scenes. During high school, I took a couple of drawing, photography, and painting classes. My father, who passed away on March 4, 2017, got me into photography back in 2006. I started with film and eventually changed over to digital in 2007. I received my first DSLR camera in 2012, and I upgraded to a Canon EOS 7D in 2015. And since then, I have used the same equipment up to this day.

During my time at Front Range Community College, I took some more drawing and painting classes for my associate's degree that I received in 2015. Over the past few years, I have become familiar with various Adobe programs and 3D modeling programs.
