As a Communication student with an emphasis in Video Production and Photography, I’ve been able to learn from extremely talented mentors and polish valuable, and up to date, industry skills. For the past 3 years I’ve been building my own portfolio in WordPress, creating award-winning photography through Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom; and being part of several student productions including an award winning shortfilm sponsored to compete in a film festival.

Many people say that if you do what you love as a job, you’ll never have to work; and that’s how it has felt like for me while working as a professional photographer. I’m inspired to tell people’s stories and share feelings through photography. In the last 2 years I have been working under the direction of the official BYU-Idaho photographer. During this time, many of my pictures have been viewed, shared, liked, printed and published internationally. Organizations such as Church News, LDS Public Affairs and Deseret News, among others, have relied on my photographs for many of their publications regarding Brigham Young University–Idaho.
