BIOGRAPHY
I grew up in a creative family that allowed me to be as weird as I want. When I decided to take a year off after highs chool, my family supported it. When I wanted to drop out of college to take my photography full time, my family supported that too. I don't know if it's more important that I ended up shooting or that I had the choice of where I ended up. I know that not everyone gets that so I'm going to go with the latter.

In 5 years I imagine that I'll be hopefully diving into aspects of my work that I'm not even thinking about now. It seems that every year I'm finding one or two specific things that I work to improve over that year. I hope my work will be deeper and more meaningful by then (as that's what I'm currently working on).

Currently, I'm trying to put more meaning and more of myself into my work. I find that all of my favorite artists are the ones that have work that leaves things to be learned or discovered buried with in it.

ONE THING I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT
Sushi is pretty vital to my existence.
