About Me I take my job with my animals seriously and it comes first before most things in my life. I am inspired by the relationship between human and animal. Canines (especially wolves) have always been my passion. As a kid I was training and showing dogs; where I was able to learn the importance of proper animal handling and husbandry. Always a creative person, I picked up my first camera at 13 and embarked on an amazing journey. I owe so much to my trusty shepherd mix Zero who served as a patient model while I honed my craft. In 2010, I graduated from CCAD with a BFA in Photography. My goal was to work with wolves. Through time, my dreams have become reality. I own and operate my ambassador program Ironwood Wolves. Along with featuring our animals in creative collaborations, we take them to public venues and educate others on the importance of wolves (and other wild canids) in the ecosystem.
William Wegman has his weimaraners, and I have my wolfdogs. I've also been fortunate to travel and photograph countless other exotic animals throughout the country. I feel that the beauty of these animals alongside the characters in my images tells a story. My hope is that my art and my educational program will inspire people to love and respect wolves (and all of nature).
