I am a Chicago based photographer working in both commercial and editorial capacities with a specialization in narrative portraiture. I continue to travel all over the world for projects of both a personal and commercial nature. I studied for a fine art degree in both photography and the sculptural mixed media arts. My fine art work has been shown in multiple galleries around the country and heavily informs my thinking in photography. The three dimensional nature of my fine art work has pushed me to a deep interest in creating layers both physical and symbolic in the work I create. I grew up abroad and my perspective on the creative comes with a global awareness and a passion for the cultures and world views others have to share. These elements inform my images and create complex layers of interwoven pieces that enrich and deepen my work. For these reasons I am interested in folklore and fairytales. As societal and cultural shapers, these stories fascinate me for their ability to give life to our history, perspective to our present, and bring change to our future. I'm grateful to you for taking the time to explore my work, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more.
