Born in Brooklyn New York on December 30th, 1985, I attended Saint Ann's School, a small liberal, institution located in Brooklyn Heights. Following high school, I attended Princeton University, where I received my B.A. in Anthropology and Photography, studying under Emmet Gowin, Andrew Moore, Carol Greenhouse, and Joao Biehl. Upon graduation, I received a Princeton in Asia fellowship, which allowed me to work with a visual anthropologist in Nepal and India, an experience that dramatically impacted my life. After my return to the States, I exhibited work at Superfine Gallery in the Fall of 2009 and recently exhibited work at the first annual Princeton Alumni Exhibition, "On the Street." I most recently worked and lived at Spring Lake Ranch Therapeutic Community in Cuttingsville, VT. Travels and adventures await...
Artist Statement

"We tell ourselves stories in order to live." - Joan Didion

Artistic expression sustains my sense of self. It is my constant. It tells my story. I currently work with film and poetry to decipher emotions and experiences. The result is perpetually a surprise, as I am motivated purely by an excavation of the heart and am never certain of what I will find. This continually changing body of work allows me the opportunity to share my story with others. I hope you enjoy.
