Currently I’m attending Pratt's MFA program where I’m happy to be working in an array of artistic mediums. Originally from Santa Monica, CA, I now call Brooklyn home.
In high school I took a darkroom photography class, which sparked an interest in the photographic medium. Not only was photography a way for me to make sense of the world around, but it helped me find my own solace in an already image-saturated world.
After graduating from Art Center College of Design in 2010, I focused all my energy on portraiture, working mainly on editorial and commercial projects; I work with a deeply introspective eye and empathetic nature to engage with each person or animal I photograph.
Two years ago I co-created a photography collective, with photographer and activist Sina Basila. Seeing Collective (SeeC): a space for photographer's to share clients, industry knowledge, and gain critical feedback on personal projects. We recently joined forces in partnership with a local school in Bushwick called BKC, where we host talks, promote artists works, and curate group gallery shows. We’re currently running a relief market fund to support artists out of work due to Covid-19.
Drawn to interesting people, unique places, and subcultures; I work to craft visually distinct narratives and untold stories.
