Nature and Healing Arts Photographer
I’ve been taking pictures practically all my life. What started with an old Kodak Brownie camera from my dad turned into a professional career in photojournalism. From there I studied architectural photography and eventually landed on my true passion: photographing healing nature images.
From colorful botanicals to soothing landscapes, I tell the stories of communities through the natural world that surrounds them. My extensive background in the principles of biophilic design led me to understand nature’s healing power and how it connects us all. I’ve seen firsthand how soothing nature images transform sterile environments into spaces that heal.
Now I spend my days traveling across the US, capturing nature images for hospitals, healthcare, and wellness environments in my own backyard and beyond.
From small rural hospitals to large-scale healthcare environments like Mayo Clinic, CHI, Allina Health, and Kaiser Permanente, I’ve seen how nature can improve patient outcomes, uplift cancer patients, rejuvenate overworked hospital staff and reduce the need for long hospital stays and medications.
Seeing the power of bringing nature indoors gives me purpose and hope, which is why you’ll rarely find me far from a viewfinder.
