About Dakotah


Born & raised in the foothills of rural Southern Indiana, I now reside in Coastal Virginia's Hampton Roads with my small family. At 19 I joined the United States Navy and shortly thereafter spent 9 months circumnavigating the globe on a warship. I'm currently in my 5th year of active duty with plans to part ways and pursue photography full time in late 2019. In my down time I enjoy spending too much money on iced coffee, trips to Target, and making excuses about why my car isn't as clean as it should be.
