I see art as a way to engage and understand the world around me. When I started making art I realized that there were other good side effects, like the meditative properties you can find in making things and meeting good people. A love of photography and politics led me to pursue studying at Hampshire College, where I completed a self-directed Concentration, Senses Of/In Justice, about the criminal justice system in the United States at various intersections of US culture. I went on to study at MICA under Timothy Druckrey and Will Larson, completing a body of work called The Times, a photographic and print investigation of the newspaper as a medium and cultural force. I am currently Art Faculty and Gallery Coordinator at Friends School of Baltimore where I enjoy using my day job to keep the creative juices flowing.
