My photographic journey began with taking portraits of friends in high school using a disposable film camera.

During my first few years of university, I majored in psychology until I took a class on the history of modern art, where I learned how art could tap into the subconscious and help people perceive the world and themselves in new ways.  I realized that art can connect with people on a subconscious level, allowing people to explore the soul in unexpected ways.

I graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a degree in studio arts.  After that, I practiced my craft by working with a wide range of people in settings ranging from food-truck kitchens to movie sets, learned from mentors in photography, and have had the privilege to teach and show my work in Los Angeles, New York, and Tokyo.

Outside of photography, I am passionate about making pottery, cooking, and volunteering at Venice Arts, an organization that brings art education to disadvantaged youth.

 

My work is an ode to sensuality in light and shadow.

If you’re picking up what I’m putting down, I’d love to hear from you.
