(b. 1987) lives and works in Los Angeles


" I grew up in Seal Beach, CA. Both my parents were art majors in college, so they regularly took me to museums, concerts, and dance programs up in LA, which most people in Orange County didn’t do. I flirted with drawing and painting as a child, but it never really stuck. Photography, as an artistic medium, always appealed to me, but I didn’t have any technical training until high school. When I went to Pitzer College, a small liberal arts school, I had no intention of majoring in art, but then it just became sort of inevitable. It was the mid-aughts and it was this moment where analogue was being rapidly replaced with digital, and school was one of the last places to freely use a darkroom. I thought I was making work to maximize a suddenly disappearing resource, but the more I made, the more I realized that it wasn’t just a hobby. The compulsion to make art is a fundamental part of who I am."
