Artist’s Statement

I took my first photographs with my parents’ Instamatic camera when I was eight. A year or two later, I learned how to develop and print black and white film, and I’ve called myself a photographer ever since.

While studying for my bachelor’s degree at RIT, the world of shooting and printing in color opened up for me, and I got my first taste of working digitally.

When I look back at my earliest childhood snapshots, a fascination with pattern, texture, and details is already clearly evident. I continue to explore these interests in both black and white and color.
