My experience as a photographer comes paired with aviation industry knowledge and experience I have gained through my roles as a Pilot, Rescue Specialist, and United States Coast Guard Rescue Swimmer, .
As a professional for over 7 years in the Search and Rescue (SAR) and Aviation industries, I have been blessed with experiences and positions that have enabled me to pursue my passion as a photographer while remaining active within the SAR communities.
My interest in photography developed during my time spent as a Helicopter Rescue Swimmer on the Oregon Coast. The dramatic scenery of the coast, the terrain in the Cascade Mountains and dynamic nature of my job offered a variety of subjects to shoot. As my love for the art form grew, I knew it was something I wanted to pursue professionally.
In early 2022, I was hired on with Priority 1 Air Rescue, where I am currently employed as a Rescue Specialist (RS) and Photographer. My passion for aviation has also led me to pursue my FAA Commercial License and finish my degree with hopes of continuing a career as an aviation professional.
