Hello! I am a Los Angeles-based photographer and filmmaker who focuses on conceptual experimental portraiture and narrative cinema. Information about my past/present group exhibits, projects, and awards is on my CV.

I am most interested in portraiture that asks people (myself included) to consider their hidden motives, desire, fear, and shame. I am concerned by the lack of societal value placed on understanding these underlying emotions, and how this lack of value stunts the growth of fulfilling human relationships. I also explore themes of isolation, repression, and how dreams, thoughts, and feelings interact with one another in the brain.

I received an Associate of Arts degree in Photography from Los Angeles City College and I am a current student at the University of Southern California, studying Cinema and Television Production.

I studied acting in New York for three years and have lived in Los Angeles since 2013.

I work freelance gigs in headshot, theater, and event photography and in music video production. If you are interested in these services, please email me for more details. I would love to discuss your needs to find out if I’m the right fit.
