About Me


Right now...

 I am studying photography at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I love being part of the UAF community and am member of several organizations. I currently serve as the Director of the Frozen Lenses Photography Club and play the string bass with the Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra.

I served as the photo editor for The Sun Star for a several years and have freelanced as a photojournalist for the Juneau Empire and around the state of Alaska. In 2016 I won Best Portrait at the state journalism conference, Alaska Press Club.

I work as the assistant photographer for the University of Alaska Fairbanks under Chief Photographer, JR Ancheta. I also work for the UAF College of Liberal Arts as a marketing assistant and serve as a jack of all trades but primarily function as a staff photographer and social media manager.

I have two wonderful dog babies, Beauty and Fizzy who were both rescue animals. I love living in Alaska, it's always an adventure! I was a tour guide with Northern Alaska Tour Company for the first several years I moved to Fairbanks. I operated a 25 passenger coach on the infamous Dalton Highway and took visitors to the Arctic Circle and beyond. I have an affinity for the Arctic and the North.

In addition to photojournalism assignments and documenting work, I primarily photograph the nude female figure. Much of my work revolves around form studies and is a contemporary take on boudoir photography. I am involved in the body-positive movement and my goal is to create beautiful images of women that will empower them and hopefully shape a more confident sense of ownership and pride of their bodies.

It all started when...

Born in Carson City, NV and raised in Honduras on the island of Roatán- traveling, culture and language have been a large part of my life. 

Growing up on a tropical island off the coast of Honduras in Central America, I was never without a black, plastic disposable camera. Camera firmly clenched in my hand, I weaved and bobbed through the mangrove trees on our property at the water’s edge taking photos of everything.

Taking photos is something I have loved for as long as I can remember. I’d never have guessed the disposable cameras I ran around with would one day turn into viable career opportunity.  

At the young age of five, I distinctly recall thumbing through family photos and knowing I had something special in my hands. There is something magical about capturing a single and fleeting moment in an image that you can keep forever.

Despite photography being a large part of my life since I was a little girl, I initially did not pursue it when I went to college. I started college at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque as a Foreign Language major.
