I grew up partly in The Dominican Republic on my family's small subsistence farm, and partly in Louisville, KY. After receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Studio Art from The College of Wooster I moved to the West Coast and have been traveling and leading a nomadic lifestyle ever since. I seek out places I've never been and want to learn more about and use photography as a note-taking tool. Visuals tell stories. My photography, sculpture and wearable art often focus on themes of conservation, reusing materials, and dichotomies such as hard/soft, rich/poor, big/small, outside/inside, perceptions vs reality. Growing up in a family of political activists and educators has impacted me more than anything else and the issues and solutions of our time wend their way through my mind and everything I say/do/make.
