I trained in the culinary arts, and spent the better part of my 20s in kitchens. I worked with amazing chefs who changed the way that I view food, and the food chain. I am a grad of the Art institute of Colorado and do my best to translate my love of food to film.

I started my career in photography much like others..half by chance, half by a brave choice. After receiving my BS degree in photography I joined the commercial studio with Ben in 2012. I now reside in Dallas, TX with my husband and two pups where true to folklore everything is bigger.
Food, coffee and places are what make me most inspired to reach for my camera.
After earning a B.S. degree in Photography, a year in the desert, and some years as a freelancer, I landed an incredible opportunity to join the Ben Piper team in late October of 2020. Whether it’s organizing images, handling retouch, or taking the shot, it’s the moment something beautiful is captured where I truly draw inspiration. Though inspiration comes a whole lot easier with the continuous love and support from my pups and wife . . . and coffee.
