I practice portrait, landscape, and documentary photography.
During pre- and post-production, I draw inspiration from film, music, poetry, art, fiction, and experience to convey emotions and spiritual sentiments through close attention to color, texture, framing, and light.
I currently teach writing composition at the University of Washington, where I am a graduate student.
I studied English at Whittier College and am from Los Angeles. In photography I am mostly self-taught.
