I'm a certified brand anthropologist  and professional photographer with the education (anthropology) and experience (content marketing) to refine your brand, tell your story, create your images, and increase your reputation.  I teach photographers the skills they need to break into personal branding using real marketing strategy.

I'm an award-winning family photographer who specializes in kids and special needs.  I also provide lifestyle photography.
