I AM AN EXPERIMENTAL PHOTOGRAPHER, MUSICIAN AND ILLUSTRATOR

I got into photography in 2004 because life is dreamy and I was searching for meaning. Now I find meaning in creativity, growth and building safe + inclusive community. You can often find me scheming, advocating and otherwise engaging in vigilante activism and care.

My favorite ways to pass the time are lost in grounded routine at home, or on the road to visit loved ones.

With 15 years developing my practice, I offer an experience rooted in quiet confidence, sensitivity and play to create extraordinary images with you. Getting your photo taken may not feel natural at first, but I keep the energy dynamic, giving direction when you need it.

CREATING ART IS MY PASSION, WHETHER IT'S VISUAL ART OR MUSIC

From recording alone in my childhood bedroom to performing live with friends, music has always been part of my practice. Ask me about playlists (or my own albums if you’re interested!), I have tons to share.

Drawing is how I communicate

I use markers, paints, pencils, make comic books and sometimes even tattoo my own skin. My drawings are mostly about emotions, mental health and my life. You can check out my most recent comic feature here.
