My work is focused on introspection and how photography can be used to investigate fragments of memory to engage with self-identity. I create images referenced on memories and fabricate memories through the process of image making. That conversation between fact and fiction is an effort to expose layers of identity rooted in the past and build others based on the present.

As a child, I moved often between anonymous American small towns. The pattern of starting over in new places would have a lasting impact on my relationship with the idea of “home," test my capacity for emotional connections, and complicate my views on sex and sexuality. This series specifically confronts the expectations we put on home life and considers how memories of home, whether true or false, shape us. Are we ourselves because of our home lives or despite them?
