I grew up in Batavia IL, a small suburb on the west side of Chicago. After graduating highschool I moved to Silver Lake, WI followed by Green Bay, WI to pursue an education at the University of Wisconsin. I soon realized this wasn’t the career path for me and moved to Gunnison, CO to pursue a degree in Recreation and Outdoor Education from Western Colorado University. Once in the mountains my passion for photography turned into a career. I now spend my time sharing the place that I love as a content creator for Travel Crested Butte.
