Born in Detroit, MI, I have always seen value in the sights many people turn away from. At a young age, my great grandfather taught me how to use a film camera. In pursuit of a BFA focused in Photography, I relocated to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, from which I graduated with honors.
My art revolves around the idea of time-losing it, trapping it, making it, and anticipating its end. I create photos because I know nothing lasts forever, but sometimes I wish it would. Specifically, my grandparents. I know that my time with them is/has been limited and I struggle to grasp and glean everything that I wish I could from them while I still can. I create images of my time with them, trying to figure out how to cope once they're gone. What I create is a record of what is here, as it slips through my fingers.
