I grew up in rural Canada, and now live in Talent, Oregon. In 2008, I was diagnosed with ALS, and have since lost most of my motor skills, including my ability to walk, and I have been primarily confined to a power chair since 2012. I am a self-taught photographer, and began taking photos shortly before being diagnosed with ALS in 2008.

Though I started out using a digital SLR, it wasn’t long before I embraced the beauty of film. Using mostly medium format cameras, my work is now nearly 100% film based.

Inspired by the color photography of Steven Shore and William Eggleston, I strive to find simple beauty, in everyday life, but from a unique perspective.

I am a proud member of the Film Shooters Collective
