Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri currently based in Oakland, California working as a curator at VSCO. After earning my Bachelor of Arts degrees in sociology and photography from the University of Missouri-St. Louis, I traveled throughout the United States as a freelance photographer specializing in music and lifestyle subjects. Using both film and digital formats. I create new experiences through my photography by connecting my audience to the beauty of everyday life that they may often overlook. Urban settings provide inspiration for me, then I create imagery that encourages viewers to address the culture of one's surroundings.
