I am a visual journalist from New York City and currently pursuing a BFA in photojournalism at Rochester Institute of Technology. I am fascinated by ideas that spark new perspectives on familiar challenges. I revel in taking the world we all know and turning it around by viewing it from a strange, but a strangely enlightening new angle. Topics that interest me range from family and unusual career choices to themes of loss and sacrifice.
In 2017, I was selected by Photo Boite as one of their 30 Under 30 women photographers. That same year, I attended the Eddie Adams Workshop and my portrait of a reborn doll owner was a finalist for the American Experience category in the 15th annual Smithsonian Magazine photo contest. My work has been recognized by National Geographic's Daily Dozen, and in the student-run RIT NPPA What We Do competition.
