I was born in Wurzburg Germany to military parents. Throughout my childhood we moved regularly. During my youth I became interested in photography and other forms of art. In high school I attended drawing classes and learned about good composition. My studies continued through years of college courses. I recieved an Associates degree from College of the Siskiyous in May 2003 and a Bachelors degree in June 2012 from Southern Oregon University. Both degrees focused on art and primarily my studies were in Photography and digital media during the last couple of years.
