I am a New York City based visual artist working in mediums of performance, video, and photography.

I use art to investigate my interest in identity. Not necessarily a prescribed social or cultural identity, but the individual perception of the self and its actualization. I believe the self is realized through conflict and curation. I attempt to relay this through the repeated multiples of my person in self portraits, the tone and narration of my video, and the actions of my performances. The chipping away and building up of the identity is a process of competing acts of denigration and praise as I examine the parts of myself and decide what’s worth keeping and what can be discarded. 

Alongside this practice, I work as a commercial photographer in New York City. I hope to evoke the elevated atmosphere curated by my clients in my images. I shoot events, festivals, shows, fashion, editorials, and portraits. I enjoy being the bright flash in a dark room and making people feel like they deserve to have their picture taken.
