Born and raised in Webster City, Iowa. I am an aspiring writer and photographer, with a little bit of digital artwork done on the side. I am currently working on a story that I hope turns into my first published piece. I've always been a big Tim Burton fan and his influence tends to creep into everything that I do.
I love taking photographs. Black and white photos are probably my favorite, though I quite enjoy doing outdoor and nature scenery as well. I like to go out on a hike with my camera and document whatever I can find. Staged shoots are fun, especially when I can control the lighting and create an extra creepy atmosphere.
Recently I've started attempting to make digital drawings with the use of a graphics tablet and some fancy software on my PC. It's completely new to me and, like everything else I am entirely self taught. But I've enjoyed creating what I can and have surprisingly sold a few pieces along the way.
