Background

I'm a New York City based fine art and freelance photographer. I grew up in Delaware but now call LIC, Queens home. I received my B.A. in Studio Art and Theater from Oberlin College and I've been living and working in NYC since 2006.

In my spare time I love biking around the city, exploring new neighborhoods, reading, perusing art blogs, dabbling in graphic design and practicing yoga. I love meeting new people and finding beauty and humor in every day moments and interactions.

Statement

I am interested in the painterly side of photography - I am drawn to color, abstraction, soft focus and motion. Many of these images were taken while traveling in moving vehicles through new landscapes. I am a New Yorker who often craves nature and quiet - these images reflect that juxtaposition between constant motion and a search for tranquility.
