I am a spirited conservation photographer who is currently a Masters Student in the Masters of Applied Science program with an emphasis in Science Communication at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. My love for nature and conservation started at a young age influenced through backpacking trips, day hiking, camping, and traveling throughout the United States. Nebraska has become a home base for me, and I have spent the past two years working for Platte Basin Timelapse, a conservation project associated with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, that works to capture change overtime within the Platte Basin Watershed.
My photography career began in a class called Digital Imaging and Storytelling, taught by two incredible teachers and photographers, Michael Forsberg and Michael Farrell. They have inspired me to use my photographs as a way to tell stories and communicate science to help protect and conserve wildlife.
