While growing up in New England, I was always exploring the outdoors, but was unaware that I would later seek so much inspiration from it..
During college, I was focusing mostly on outdoor sports photography, trying to capture moments that a committed athlete experiences, whether they are well-known, or are 'weekend warriors', exercising their passion whenever possible. I am very interested in showing a different side of sports- one that doesn't stem from recognition or fame, but from an internal desire to excel and play within nature. This is still a constant theme in my work, but it has led me to explore the theme of travel.
I travel during
the year for jobs in the whitewater industry, either as a photographer, a
rafting guide, or a video-kayaker. I graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston
with a BFA in Photography, and began traveling full-time after
graduation. I aim to expose the beauty that exists in less-traveled
places and the people that live in them, as well as
exploring our relationship with nature.
I believe that my
music runs parallel with my work, putting the images I see and moments I
experience into literal words with melodies guiding them. I have been
playing music since I was sixteen and was able to take classes at Berklee College of Music,
focusing on Songwriting and Lyric Writing.
Music is a passion that I've
been taking advantage of, playing open mics and featuring at local
venues as well as across the U.S. Having recorded some songs with
friends, I am looking to take the next step with my music and promote it
as well as perform it at any chance possible.
