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.
