Always interested in the arts, the normal degree in Finance was never going to work for me. Originally architecture seemed to be the best move to combine my interest in design/art with a "respectable" career. It wasn't until I took my first art history course in college that I realized there was so much more to art than the image. Being able to see history through the lens of the artist, instead of the masters of the textbook, was something that changed my life. Since that point I have devoted my time to helping artists express themselves in an age of technology and uncertainty. As a photographer I also deal with these same issues, with my lens pointed at the objectivity of the world. Through this objective lens I work towards shining a light on historical privilege towards majorities, while also representing a death to these ideals through aesthetics and the physicality of photography as a medium.
