Biography

Welcome! I am so glad you are visiting my website.

I recently relocated to North Platte, Nebraska! 

I am 23 years old, born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. I have always had an interest in photography throughout my life. However, my real journey with photography didn't begin until 2018 during my first year of storm chasing.

 

As a child, I was deathly afraid of storms. I grew up in Hesston, KS during much of my childhood and later attended Middle School-High School in Udall, KS. It wasn't until I was in Middle School when I really began to take an interest in weather and storms. Having grown up in two small towns that previously had major impacts from very historical tornadoes, I started developing an interest in severe weather. I would watch chasers live stream their storm chases during classes throughout Middle School & High School and very quickly had my own dream to one day storm chase. 

Storm chasing is now a major part of my life and I am so fascinated by storms. The devastation storms can bring is heartbreaking and devastating. However, storms also have many attributes to be admired. Every storm is unique with different colors, shapes, sizes, etc. It is very rare that any two storms are the same. They each behave in their own way and have a life and story to be told. I try to capture their lives and stories through my photography & videography. There is nothing like standing near an open field with a massively beautiful mothership in front of you, or a beautifully shaped & colored tornado going through its life in an open field.  

 

I started out taking storm pictures on my phone. Unsatisfied with the picture quality and results, I bought my first professional camera in 2019, a Canon EOS Rebel T7 with a EF-S 18-55mm & EF 75-300mm lenses. Storm chasing has been my main photography, along with landscape & nature photography. However, I wanted to expand my photograph talents and recently began trying to adventure into the professional photography area doing some portraits, engagements, and weddings. I am still looking to expand my skills/talents in those areas and offer professional services.
