I am a Visual Artist, based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. After getting a BA in fine art photography, I have spent the past 3 years doing street and landscape photography around the world, which I employ as a means of assimilating with the worlds I have found myself surrounded with.
While much of my ancestral roots lie in northeastern Europe, and upon traveling throughout, I unsurprisingly found a warm familiarity with the area. There is a particular sincerity about the lives and objectives of the demographic, which is a quality I strive to both capture and possess in my photographic work.
I was raised in a military family, and was fortunate enough to grow up in a variety of landscapes, which may go to prove my restless impulses to remain dynamic, and tell the story of the endlessly changing spaces and peoples that I find myself amongst.
My work encompasses themes of time, land use, and the faces that are both dedicated to and influenced by these topics. Every portrait that I take, often takes the form of a narrative self-portrait, inspired by those dedicated to their craft, whatever that may be. I adore wrinkles, what the topography, texture, and lines of someone’s face serve as a biography into their past.
