About Me

I have been drawing since I was a kid. I wanted so desperately to be like my artistic brother who never stopped drawing, not even one hiatus, but I ended up going down way more artistic paths than I could have ever imagined. Photography, mixed media, and painting were all areas I explored on my own, but what I'm most proud of is my photography. 

When I picked up the camera several years ago, I aimed to be an event photographer at concerts and shows, but I realized that it was definitely not for me. It was limiting to my creativity and I wanted to explore storytelling with my work, get weird, and implement experimental editing styles. I then completely flipped the script going out and exploring the world as well as working primarily with artists and musicians. I can no longer imagine taking photos that aren't telling a story or expressing complex emotions. I strive to capture the beauty of what it is to be human in every sense.

 

Modeling has also helped me in so many ways and has allowed me to smash the stereotype I've always seen in magazines and media. I want to showcase modeling as art and I am passionate about feminist outlooks that removes all societal expectations and pressures. This is a new journey for me and wherever it ends up taking me, it will be to show other women and non-binary folks that they don't have to be ANYthing but themselves.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me!
