I live in San Francisco and was born and raised in Marin County. I went to Wheaton College outside of Boston, lived in Manhattan, worked at Sothebys and assisted commercial photographers. I moved to Los Angeles to attend The Art Center College of Design for an intensive in everything technical about photography-incredible education. While I was there I met inspiring artists such as Christopher Williams and Eve Fowler who encouraged me to attend graduate school. I decided on The Royal College of Art in London. It was pretty incredible. I had no idea how special these two years would really be.
I have spent the last five years living in the Bay Area. The Headlands Center for the Arts gave me a studio for three years and I found two great galleries, Taylor De Cordoba and Weston Gallery to represent my work.
I currently am very grateful to be working/squatting in an office space for lease downtown with an some serious views of the city…I call it my studio in the sky.
