"My passion is teaching astrophotography that inspires others to explore the night sky"


In 2016, my "Star Trails and Northern Lights over Mt. Rainier" photo was turned into a USPS Forever Stamp celebrating the National Park Service Centennial. Most recently in 2020, I was honored to be the National Park Service Artist in Residence at Craters of the Moon. To this day, my goal is to pass along my love for photography by teaching workshops!

I love teaching and helping others improve their photography! I offer photography workshops so that students can gain valuable field experience and learn in a group setting where practice makes all the difference.


I enjoy shooting night sky, landscape, and deep sky astronomy photography. Interested in image licensing and prints? Please send me an email.


Do you have a need for a guest speaker? As a former National Park Service Astronomy Ranger and Science Teacher, I love inspiring others through engaging presentations for all levels.
