Autobiography, Long Version:

     I came into the world fifth of a family of five. It was in Murfreesboro, Tennessee that I was born, and lived there for six years until my dad was hired as a pastor of Community Presbyterian Church in Cannon Beach, Oregon. We lived in a rental house there for a few years and then built our own house in the middle of the forest, with a five minute walk to the beach. I went to Cannon Beach Elementary grade school, Seaside Middle School, and Seaside High School. In grade school and middle school, I played soccer, and spent the summers amusing myself with video games, and playing on the beach. I also acted in the local theatre with my family up until my freshman year of high school. Along with soccer and track, I also did swimming my freshman year of high school. I was the worst on the team, but it was still an enjoyable experience. I was a defender on the soccer team up until my senior year when I switched to running cross country. In track, I was a distance runner. During my senior year, I ran a 9:50 in the 3000m and a 4:29 in the 1500m. I graduated from high school with only four Bs, placing in the top ten GPAs in my class.
Summers during high school were different from middle school. I worked a variety of jobs: stocking at a local grocery store, doing laundry and housekeeping for a local hotel, and working on websites for local businesses. The summer after my freshman year my family took a five week tour throughout Europe. I got a video camera right before we left, and took a total of 12 hours of video throughout the trip. The summer after my sophomore year, my family went hiking up in the Olympic National Park, and every summer since then, we’ve gone hiking through different parts of the park, usually going about 50 miles within a week. 
     During the first hike in the Olympic National Park, my mom brought her film camera, and I kept borrowing it to photograph the surroundings. Soon after I got back from the hike, I got my first digital camera (August 2003). Although it was an old camera it suited me well. I upgraded cameras about a year after that (June 2004), than really took off with photography. Recently I upgraded to a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex, can change lenses), which has much better capabilities (June 2006). Though I love photojournalism, my real passion is in nature and landscapes. My aim is to capture the glory of God’s creation and to share that glory with others. As the Bible says, “the heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” (Psalm 19:1). I hope that each of my photographs point people to God, that they look to him as the creator rather than looking at His creation and my skill in capturing it. 
     Whitworth College is the only school I applied to, and I was accepted around Christmas in 2004. I am a digital art major, focusing on digital photography. I did Cross Country my freshman year, but this year, I am the photo editor for the Whitworthian, which has been a lot of work, but a good experience. After college, I plan on getting a job at a place where I can grow both in my photography and in my faith. But the future is not up to me, I look to God, that His will may work though my life, and that I may shine his light.
