“The photographs presented provide a general overview of the diversity of my experience, and to showcase examples of commissions that have felt the most fulfilling.

My work is a representation of my identity within a community of artists, as an individual within a collective.  I make effort to cultivate genuine intimacy - to reflect the sincerity of the value I place on interpersonal relationships, how I view others, and how they would like to be seen. 

My general interests are rooted in psychology, observation, intuition, and anthropology.  I am specifically impressed by vulnerability and honesty.  I make portraits because it's something that brings me joy.  I tend to find myself photographing musicians & artists quite simply because of my deep love of music & art, and the comfort I feel around others that have courageously pursued unconventional professions that have chosen them.”
