Growing up in Staten Island, I had always felt the urge to be beyond its borders. This manifested itself not long ago in a solo cross-country trip out West from New York on a motorcycle, a few years after my father had passed.
After two years out West, I moved back to New York (and eventually back to my hometown). Around the same time, I began honing my photography practice, while photographing my experience and all the strange familiarities of this place, which I continue to do.
I'm currently studying at the International Center of Photography in Manhattan and hold a Bachelor's in Creative Writing from Hunter College.
