I am a clinical social worker, originally from Texas, ten years in Chicago. I picked up photography while earning a master's degree in social work at the University of Chicago. My first solo exhibition, "Dreams of Caprices (on Chrome)," comprised of portraits and Chevrolet Caprice Classics on Ektachrome slide film, was held in 2015. Photographic portrait-making, like social work, is a facet of my interest in persons. Another is Rhymes & Reasons, a rhythmic podcast I co-create and edit that tells the stories of individuals positively affected by hip-hop music. Artistically, I am a realist. I try to testify to others' experience, and mine of them, with grace.
