About Me

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.

The strong narratives often give way to sad moments of loneliness, despair, or heartache. However, the artist also finds ways to touch on real life moments with a bit of a twist and, throughout his work, he is able to maintain a sense of humor that will make viewers…

Hard-Working Cleaners in their Beautiful Artistic Sanctuaries



When the lights go off and the crowds disperse, a public building doesn't just clean itself. In his series, entitled Melbourne Cleaners, Australian photographer Greg Briggs recognizes the hard work that goes into maintaining the illusion of an always-clean gallery, art museum, movie theater, or ornate church.
