For over 15 years, I’ve been merging my skills as a photographer and art director to create compelling visual work, rich in both cultural context & character.

It was inevitable that I would become a creative professional. As the daughter of a seasoned photojournalist, creative storytelling is in my blood. Born and raised in Ontario, I studied Photography at Sheridan College and Communications Design at Seneca @ York before arriving in Calgary, Alberta, my current home base.

I’ve worked in ad agencies and design firms, overseeing campaigns and identity projects from start to finish. My photography has been featured in Westjet Magazine, The Calgary Herald, The Montreal Gazette, Avenue Magazine, Swerve Magazine, The Ryerson Review of Journalism, Photolife & more.

A few career highlights so far include winning a Gold Photography Award for 'Au Vieux Fanal' from the Rooms for Tourists project at the Alberta Magazine Publishers Awards, and publishing The Building Project, my first grant-funded photo book. in 2019, I co-curated an all-female photography exhibition called The Female Lens which debuted at The Christine Klassen Gallery for the Alberta Exposure Photography Festival.

If I could photograph anyone, it would be Kim Gordon, founding member of Sonic Youth. My favourite Pantone colour is Warm Grey 3.
