Biography and Curriculum Vitae
I have always loved animals, but for many years I was afraid to get involved with rescuing them because I couldn’t imagine how I would deal with the heartbreak. About five years ago, I decided that animals needed me more than I needed to be comfortable, and so I began volunteering with rescue groups as a caregiver and photographer. As I spent more time experiencing animals as individuals through the lens of my camera, I began questioning how I could profess to love them, yet continue exploiting them for food, clothing and other materials. I committed to become vegan and use photography to advocate for animal liberation.
I work primarily on a non-profit basis, donating my services to animal rescue groups and at least 50% of my profits to support animal rescue.
