I’ve been a barista now for about 10 years, on and off, and it’s one of my greatest joys. Seeing smiles as I hand out coffee (I call it ‘life-blood’) to regulars gives me such a feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment. I’m no longer actively working as a barista, but I still visit the coffee shop every morning to get my daily cup of life-blood.

Coffee shops are one of my biggest passions. I fully believe you can make or break someone’s entire day by their first interaction at the coffee shop. A poorly made coffee can result in a poor day. A bright smile and a delicious cup of coffee = an amazing day. That’s why coffee is my passion. Coffee shops, coffee culture, baristas. I think they’re far more important than anyone else you might encounter in a given day.

In addition to loving coffee, I’m also a photographer. I LOVE capturing the joy in daily life and I enjoy candid moments the most. You can read more about my services below.

A few random facts about me:

  • I won the Alaska State Fair Grand Champion Fiddler title in 2009.

  • I’ve been a computer/tech nerd since I was 13.

  • I first held a camera when I was 12 and I was hooked. The rest is history!

  • I am obsessed with relationships and building them. I think they make the world go round.

  • Business is my hobby. And my job.

  • I have a toddler who is 3 and she’s my favorite little person ever!
