I was born on a fine spring day in Washington DC. I grew up roller skating, playing Ms. Pacman, and cheering on the Georgetown Hoyas basketball team. In 2000, I earned my BA from Georgetown University and was in my first group photography exhibition, which fueled my passion for image making. I spent seven years working as an editor and graphic designer before directing my attention to photography. In 2010 I moved to New York in order to attend the International Center of Photography. I graduated from the program in June 2011. I currently live in Manhattan and I am obsessed with everything related to art, design, and photography.
Several of my photographs have appeared in exhibitions in both DC and New York. My work has been published in the Washington Post, the New Jersey Star-Ledger, and the American Journal of Psychiatry.
