Adventurer

I’m a South Dakotan-turned-Washingtonian who loves and enjoys being outdoors every chance I get. On the weekends, you will most likely find me out hiking or backpacking, and trying to cross the next adventure off my list. I have recently started my website as a way to share my hiking and photography experiences and to inspire others to get outside and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible, and help others do the same.

Ikaika Artworks

Artist

I’ve always been creative but after I graduated from college I found myself behind a desk as a project engineer for four years. I wasn’t happy and knew something needed to change. I started creating my unique and very distinctive artwork and realized that art was my true passion in life. I started my own art business called Ikaika Artworks in 2013. Through unique stencils, textures, and spray paint I express my creativity.

Wedding and Portrait Photographer

I am a wedding and portrait photographer from Seattle. What I probably most enjoy photographing is true human emotion - I don’t think there’s anything more genuine than that. When I look at my subject through my camera, what I see is extremely beautiful and unique, and I let that moment unveil organically without any interference, because that’s the purest essence of photography.
