Born in Manchester, England I spent nine years living and working in Germany before moving to the United States. In Munich I studied photography with Michael Jochum as part of Projekt Fotografie and attended workshops at Salzburg College andFotoinitiative FLUSS in Wolkersdorf, Austria. I hold a BA in Communication from Santa Clara University and an MFA in photography and video art from San José State University. I am an assistant professor at Oregon State University teaching photography and digital media arts.
Research Interests In my creative projects, I use photography and video to problem-solve and comment on issues of the everyday; such as language, social-issues or being an artist. My work is investigative and conceptual I enjoy probing an issue or an idea and finding a creative resolution for the idea. I choose the appropriate medium for each project; thus projects may take a variety of forms.
