I was born to the lower working class in 1992. A family of blue collar people. The highest degree held by anyone in my family was a high school diploma. I strived for a better life and an education I could be proud of. I received my BA in Photography from Fresno State in 2014. And am pursuing my MFA this coming August. I have pushed myself as a photographer because I want to be one of the great artists of my time. I want to inspire others to do what I have done and be totally individualistic and not be afraid to stand out amongst the crowd. So many people are shamed for being different and are told that they are weird or strange. I want them to know that there are other people like them out their and that they don't have to feel like I felt years ago. That it is O.K. to be a uniquely free spirit.
