Julie grew up in Bend, Oregon and has been traveling far from home and taking pictures ever since childhood. She's been across the world with her camera to places as far flung as Hong Kong, Brazil, Costa Rica, Europe, and Amerikan Samoa.


Julie studied Anthropology and Spanish at the University of Oregon and worked in Amerikan Samoa as an archaeologist until she decided to move back to central Mexico to teach English as a Second Language. After teaching in Mexico and Austria, she returned to the US to obtain an a Master's Degree in Higher Education Administration and International Education. She worked in this field until 2011 when she decided to return to shooting stills and started a portrait and event photography business.


After experiencing her first narrative film set in 2017 she returned to school yet again to study Film Production at Portland State University. In her first year at PSU she had the fortune of being chosen to work as an OMPA PATHWAYS Camera PA on the feature film Pig, assisting and training with some of Portland's most accomplished filmmaking professionals. Since then, she's contributed to several local film projects in the camera department as a Local 600 Digital Utility, Digital Loader and Second Assistant Camera. Most recently she's been gaining experience as the Director of Photography on several narrative, commercial, music video, live event and documentary projects. She plans to continue to utilize her skills in photography and further her education in filmmaking, in order to continue working with professional film and photo production teams in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.​
