"The Aurora Guy"

My goal is to inspire others through my aurora photography, e-books, and blog articles.

About me

 I’m here to share my passion for science, the natural world, and more specifically, the aurora!

I’ve been a photographer since the age of 16, inspired by a love for the outdoors.

Originally from Minnesota, I grew up watching the northern lights, with my earliest memory of the aurora on October 31, 2003 – the “Halloween Storm.”

I became passionate about space weather and photography, earning my B.S. in Physics from the University of North Dakota in May 2022.

Now, I am a Space Physics Ph.D. student at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks focusing my Thesis research on auroral beads - how they form and their relation to the substorm process.
