- About -

I am a fine art photographer, emerging artist, and recent graduate of the University of Connecticut. Much of my work carries a central theme of paranoia; regarding my concern with the advancement of technology and its impact on the human mind and society, issues of privacy loss in an age of virtual transparency, and the impact of fear culture in the western world. Other bodies of work focus on cultures and ways of living that fascinate me. At the University of Connecticut, I was the recipient of several grants and awards; most notably the SURF Award and the Supply Award which funded my creative projects Documenting the Burner Subculture and FLOWHANA: Photographs of the Hawaii Fire Artists. My work has been exhibited at the Woody Gaddis Gallery in Edmond, OK, the Institute Library in New Haven, CT, Artspace Windham in Willimantic, CT, The MAC650 Gallery in Middletown, CT, and The New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT.
