About Me


blackbird singing in the dead of night, take these broken wings and learn to fly


I grew up in a small college town called Corvallis, OR. I love the pacific northwest, but I had to get out in order to not spend my entire life in the same place. Just graduated from Tufts University and the School of Museum of Fine Arts in a BA/BFA program. I work as a free-lance photographer and teacher.

I firmly believe that life is meaningless without passion. Tea is good, so is sleeping, and i plan on never fully "growing up"


+ Art is never chaste. It ought to be forbidden to ignorant innocents, never allowed into contact with those not sufficiently prepared. Yes, art is dangerous. Where it is chaste, it is not art.—Pablo Picaso

Did you know that eveyone has a little bit of artistic talent in them? It is true, I promise.
