Currently living and working in Chicago, IL, originally from Bucyrus, OH, I received my Bachelor's degree in photography from Ohio University in 2010 and have lived in Chicago since graduation. I spend a lot of time drinking coffee, making lists/playlists, capturing live music, managing chaos, and doting on my two Siamese cats.
My work is a series of personal narratives in which I document in both tender and detached settings, reconciling the distance with which we approach each other. I hope to capture the provacative and enigmatic quality of the everyday, employing available light to illuminate truth and calm vulnerablility -- or distill longing and secrecy. I am also interested in the bonds we make with our living spaces as sites of safety and solitude, while these spaces often also house feelings of uncertainty and displacement alongside years of collected sorrow.
I am available for work anywhere in Chicago and northcentral Ohio.
