I am an artist and photographer originally from Tucson, Arizona. I received a BFA in Photography from the University of Arizona and an MFA in Photography + Integrated Media from Ohio University, in Athens, Ohio. I currently reside in the Fargo/Moorhead area where I teach photography in the School of Art at Minnesota State University Moorhead. An aspiring astronomer turned artist, my current research is a reconciliation of my passion for science, observation, and his investigation of the photographic medium. I view the photograph as an artifact, not only in the historical sense, but also in the technological sense. Photographs are both truthful relics and malleable data. They can be archival documents or a stream of ones and zeros to be catalogued, shaped, or corrupted.
