Through journalism I discovered photography, but through photography I discovered myself. I have captured images of San Quentin State Prison inmates and Ugandan beer brewers, but my storytelling transcends in to my fashion work — conceptualized, and (often) styled by myself.

I graduated with Master’s of Fine Art in Photography from the Academy of Art. I also have a Master’s of Journalism degree from UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, and a Bachelor’s of Science degree from CSU Fresno.

I am based in Oakland, Ca.
