I am a person who is endlessly curious about the world around me, and I find myself constantly engaged in recording and examining that world through photography. I have come to appreciate the power of the camera; nothing besides photography can be at once an objective and subjective portrayal of reality. Exploring new places with camera in hand pushes me to engage with my surroundings on a deeper and more intricate level, noticing details and subtleties in the world that otherwise might have gone unappreciated.
I grew up on Long Island, New York, and spent the first 11 years of my life in the sprawl of suburbia. Moving to Reno, Nevada for high school opened my consciousness to the great outdoors, and ever since I have continuously ached to be outside. My subsequent four years at College of The Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine--across the street from Acadia National Park--provided countless opportunities to experience and photograph some of the best landscapes that nature has to offer. After college, traveling through China and Southeast Asia provided me with the time and material time to develop my interest in street photography.
Now I'm back in Reno, studying Documentary Filmmaking as part of a Master's in Media Innovation through the School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno. I also serve as Coordinator of the statewide Dementia Friendly Nevada initiative. Once I finish my degree, I'll be setting off on a 2023 thru-hike attempt of the Pacific Crest Trail!
