I was born and raised in Detroit, MI, but moved to New York City at the age of 24. I danced professionally there for 10 years, and then followed love to life on a vineyard in the foothills of Adelaide, South Australia. Upon returning to the states, I lived in Seattle, WA, which led to work on a fishing boat in the Bering Sea. After a year and a half I returned to NYC, where I ran a successful restaurant in the West Village, dabbled a bit into visual merchandising and prop styling, and took my first painting classes at Parsons. In 2012 I returned to Detroit continuing my study of painting at Wayne State University, where I was introduced to photography. Since 2013 I have been creating and showing paintings and photographs. I am currently in pursuit of a degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography. This is a portfolio of my work. Thanks for checking it out.
