I grew up in Florida, bathed in sunlight and begging for my first camera at the age of 10. From then on I documented everything. My pets, my brother, every local punk rock show, and my high school boyfriend with all his skater friends. All day and night. Looking back, it didn’t matter if the photos were good or not (they were not), living with my camera set a precedence for how I would be in my adult years. 

I ended up in Miami in the summer of ’06 for photo school. At 18 I knew exactly what I wanted to do and who I wanted to be. I assisted many photographers during my 12 years in the South which helped me further define what I wanted to create and how I wanted to create it. 

At the end of 2018 I left Miami for NYC. There, my love of people and how they interacted would be reignited immediately. I’ve spent the last four years absorbing this city and doing my best to translate it to you, whether that’s via a film camera, iPhone, or my digital Sony. 

The thing that brings me the most joy is finding truth in everyday life and communicating that in a way that I believe is the most visually intriguing. So often these days we see idealistic images of a very unrealistic life. I believe there is so much greatness in the here and now already. If I can freeze and collect a small handful of those moments indefinitely, I believe I am doing my job.

In my free time, when I’m not photographing, I enjoy boxing in the Bowery, cycling the five boroughs with my brother, and hiking anywhere in the USA but really, mostly… Utah (I mean, it’s so good). I love food you can eat with your hands, making pasta from scratch, and rare tropical fruits. I am currently, I’m on a mission to visit every National Park and document their grandeur and guests along the way.
