With my first anthropology course in college, I knew that I wanted to be a visual documentarian, enchanted by the idea of combining art with real life. As a photographer, I focus my efforts on the hero’s journey of the everyday individual within their community. I’m intrigued by real people and what happens at the intersection of identity, challenge and change, and the defining moments of the human experience. Documenting those dynamics requires me to approach subjects from a place of great intimacy, while not neglecting to leave room for the spontaneous. My work has been featured by the Smithsonian Magazine International Photo Competition, the Darkroom Gallery, and the MN State Fair Fine Art Exhibition. I’m a selected attendee of The Kalish Workshop at RIT and the Magnum Photos Long Format Documentary Workshop with Matt Black. Currently based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, I'm always looking for the slightest excuse to travel and capture stories.
