About Me

I am a photographer, writer, and aspiring bridge troll currently 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 an evil blog related to civil liberties and foreign policy.

My interest in photography is much more short-lived and was sparked in 2013 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. While I enjoy shooting landscapes the most, people are pretty okay, too.

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