About Me

I am a creator based in Kalamazoo, MI. I have a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

At U of M, I was a columnist for The Michigan Daily, where my investigative reporting and research uncovered a financial conflict of interest between the school president and a major corporation. The story received coverage in The Detroit Free Press, The Detroit News, and The New York Times.

After school, I moved to New York City and served as co-founder and editor-in-chief of an online publication named The New Student Union that would include 30 writers from over 15 universities across the country. I have interned for Benzinga and Business Insider, and briefly ran a blog related to civil liberties and foreign policy.

My interest in photography was sparked in 2014 while living in upstate New York.  The rivers and mountains of the Hudson Valley were among the first subjects I felt drawn to, but since then I've developed an equal love for man-made urban and industrial landscapes. In the past year, I have branched out into portraits, which is where I have focused much of my recent energy.

My work has been featured in art exhibitions around Kalamazoo. I am always up for new collaborations with fellow photographers and models. I am available for commissions, senior portraits, and any of your other photo shoot needs.

Other interests of mine including hiking,writing, and sports. I am obsessed with listening to music and collecting vinyl records. Fellow nerds can view my music reviews here, and my vinyl collection here.
