I am a photographer and artist originally from Tucson, Arizona. As a young astronomy student, I became disenchanted with applied physics and mathematics and exchanged my view through a telescope for a view through a camera lens. I received my BFA with an emphasis in Photography from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona in 2011 and my MFA in Photography + Integrated Media from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio in 2014. I currently reside in the Fargo-Moorhead area where I am an Assistant Professor of Photography in the School of Art at Minnesota State University Moorhead in Moorhead, Minnesota. I am now in my third year teaching at MSUM.
