I am an artist, educator, and activist working primarily with photography. My work is part of a long tradition in photography: to bring to light and find beauty in the disregarded, hidden, unconscious, or commonplace. Awards for my work include the Ferguson Grant from the Friends of Photography in San Francisco, CA for excellence and commitment to the field of photography. My photographs have been exhibited throughout the United States including a solo show at the Center for Photography in Woodstock, NY. I received a B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania and an M.F.A. in Photography from Indiana University. I am currently Assistant Professor of Art at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky.
