I was born and raised in Springfield, Minnesota and hold a Bachelors degree in Journalism from Marquette University. I am currently a MFA candidate at Georgia State University focusing on the photographic and moving image.

I make photographs and video that aim to depolarize existences, subverting typical narratives into micro-narratives that are personal and agile. Although photographs are fixed and still, I do not believe in stasis. Our associations, memories, thoughts, feelings, and actions constantly shift trajectories on a daily basis. Everything is constantly moving, acting, reacting. How can each of us create interactions and connections that counteract this static illusion of dichotomy, definition, control?
