Photographer | Writer | Director

As a young sk8rboi growing up in Vancouver, my hobbies included reading Maxim magazine, listening to screamo music and smoking weed in the parking lot of 7-Eleven.

After high school, I worked as an English teacher in Kyoto then spent three years toiling in Northern Alberta’s oil patch. When it came time to choose a “real” job, I picked photography. I knew I’d likely have to eat instant ramen for the rest of my life, but I was confident I’d never get bored. 

Today my passion is crafting people-focused stories and content. I’m obsessed with delightful characters and communities and exploring what makes people who they are. Whether it’s Korean beauty influencers in Toronto or Indigenous fur trappers in the Yukon, I want to bring their stories to life and share them with the world.
