My Story

I was born in Los Angeles, California and then moved to Maryland when I was six years old. At the age of seven I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, which really shapes the way I look at the world. I believe in taking every opportunity to appreciate the moments that touch me from day to day.

I received my BA in English Writing from the University of Pittsburgh in 2014 and graduated with an MFA in Photography in 2016 from the University of Ulster in Belfast, Northern Ireland. 

I have been a Vegan for 6 years and use the cruelty-free ethos to navigate my way through life. I dream of spending the rest of my days improving the lives of others by taking photos, video, writing, traveling, forming bonds with people from different cultures and sharing delicious Vegan food!
