Hobbies and Dreams


Outside of work, you’ll often find me shredding the slopes on my snowboard. In 2022 alone, I logged an impressive 37 days on the moutain of Snoqualmie, chasing adrenaline rushes and perfecting my carving. My ultimate goal? Mastering a flawless 540 on a medium jump in the park – a thrilling challenge that fuels my passion for snowboarding.


Photography is my creative outlet, where I merge my love for adventure with visual storytelling. Shooting on 35mm film is my preferred method, as it adds an element of unpredictability and excitement to the process. There’s nothing quite like the anticipation of developing film, eagerly awaiting the reveal of captured moments from months past.
