An Albuquerque native, Connor had long lacked the appreciation for his home state that he now has. After a tough few years at UNM, Connor took some time away from school and in doing so discovered his passion for the outdoors and the thrill that comes with photographing it. A gnarly mountain biker and a veteran snowboarder, Connor’s always been one for the wild, but picking up a camera changed who he saw himself becoming. With new aspiration, Connor has come back to UNM and is pursuing his degree in Communications. He served as an University Marketing and Communication Representative.
