I was born in Reno, NV in 1990. On average, I’ve moved once every year since then including to Austin, TX and into an old school in rural Illinois. This instilled a primal minimalism in me as I’ve repeatedly given up belongings and started from scratch.
My constant change of scenery and need for few things has recently sparked an interest in traveling as often and as lightly as possible. I hope to encounter many new people and experiences from which to expand my worldview and body of work.
I’m self-taught and have been taking photos since 2009. Recently, I’ve been experimenting with street shots but not exclusively. I’m intrigued by the temporary and unfamiliar – how all people and things seem to exist alone in their own tiny universes.
I use a Canon T2I (with the kit lens) and edit with Lightroom & Photoshop. The majority of my street photos are shot from the hip which I feel captures more natural expressions and more unique compositions.
