**************

How long have you been a photographer?
6 years, since 2006.

How did you get into photography?
I always loved taking pictures when I was younger, but I didn’t realize it should be my career until college. I went to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh initially for Video and soon realized my true love was a still image rather than a moving picture.

What is one thing YOU can’t do photography without?
A camera, ha!

With all seriousness, I couldn’t/wouldn’t want to work on a portfolio concepts without having a creative team of stylists by my side

What has been your most memorable experience from/while doing photography?
I’d have to say from a wedding I shot this past summer. At the reception, they got extremely wild. Let’s just say I thought I was at a bachelor/bachelorette party. It was.. interesting.

Do you have any female role models that you look up to in, or out of, the photography industry/scene?
Yes, Tyra Banks.I know some people find her annoying but I love her and what she does for young girls. She is always trying to boost their self esteem and show the beauty within.  I find her really motivating and a big inspiration.

What is one piece of advice that you would give to females interested in photography?
Keep chasing that creative dream, never let it go out of sight for too long. Remember this is what makes you happy and do everything you can to prolong this happiness. Take risks!
