My CV

california girl living in POrtugal 

"Why Portugal?" I get this question a lot. My answer: "Why not Portugal?" Yes, I'm from San Francisco, a fantastic city and California is beautiful and full of dreamers ... I just had a different dream. One of which I am fulfilling now by living in Europe, in a country with a rich culture and history. 

Photography came naturally. I was the dedicated documenter of our teenage life, mostly on the disposable camera version. I'm primarily self-taught and am more the run-and-gun style photographer than ultra technical. My thing is definitely portrait photography, close-ups, and candid captures. After years of photo shoots with friends I've honed the skill of making the subject feel at ease and their best self in front of the lens. 
I recently became a LowePro Storyteller and am extremely honored to join the super talented team of photographers. LINK TO BLOG:

TRAVEL BLOG:  Insatiable wanderlust and the quest for a year-long adventure sparked my travel blog in 2013. I set out to attend 3 destination weddings on 3 continents and wanted to tell an authentic story of my travels, rather than the highlight reel portrayed on social media. While on that trip I took a journalism course in London, and realized that I wasn't cut out to be a real life journalist. So I'll stick with the occasional post here, or a guest blog here and there on travel inspired sites. 
Currently I'm based in Lisbon, Portugal and am seeking freelance opportunities in video production, photography, and writing. 
I'd love to hear from you.
