Meet me (and peter)


I'm a Texas native, living the dream as a travel photographer and business coach based in Southern California! As a life long lover of the beach and mountains, I've found an awesome home base.

When I'm not working, you can find me surfing, riding my e-bike, or taking my pug Peter on a beach walk. I love washing down a poke bowl with a Maui seltzer (the POGs are my fav flavor!) and watching the sunset from the best seat in the house: on my board in the water. 

SoCal is home for most of the year, but I love hopping on a plane to explore cities, or just hangin' in my home state of Texas with the fam.

Speaking of travel, it's a huge part of my life. I have quite a few places that I consider my "second home" that I travel to often, including Hawaii (I lived on Oahu for 8 years), Colorado, and Utah. I'm obsessed with photographing in new places, it's so inspiring! Check out my travel schedule here to see if I'm coming to your state soon - if I'm not you should still shoot me a message because I'd prob love to visit and document your adventure!

Photog, business coach, and pug mom.

Wildest thing I've done...

My fav travel experience

I drove a go kart through tokyo dressed as yoshi. enough said!

I was... in a movie?!

I was a wedding guest in Mike and Dave need Wedding dates! You can best spot me during the rehearsal dinner scene.

Yes, Peter is missing an eye!

He was like that when I got him, and it makes him even more special! Plus, it's easier to pick him out at the pug meetups.
