WHERE ARE YOU FROM ORIGINALLY
I was born in L.A. and raised in Brooklyn.
WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THE BFA PHOTOGRAPHY PROGRAM AT PARSONS AND HOW’S IT GOING SO FAR?
The BFA Photography program has a plethora of resources. The equipment, facilities, and faculty are constantly growing and changing in order to encompass both traditional and contemporary work of varying genres.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CLASS AND WHY?
I think seminar allows for students to develop strong bodies of work for a long period of time, which allows for growth. Working on one project for a semester (or two) really forces a student to responsibility for their own work and ambitions.
HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY?
It grew organically from my interest in other forms of art and storytelling. I believe these things are delicately interconnected.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN TEN YEARS? WHAT ARE YOUR PRIMARY GOALS?
My goal is to keep learning. I would like to continue developing new perspectives.
WHAT KINDS OF THINGS SPARK YOUR IDEAS?
Reading, viewing art, having meaningful discussions, and giving time to quiet contemplation can often lead to an idea.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU AS AN ARTIST? AND WHAT ARTISTS HAVE INFLUENCED YOU THE MOST?
I enjoy the work of Rinko Kawauchi. I am inspired by observing daily life, learning about social issues, and exploring.
