I started taking pictures with my Dad's hand-me-down cameras at seven or eight, when I kept the batteries inside my brick-sized digital camera with electrical tape. But even before that my Mom tells me I loved to frame things, to go through my picture books holding up a tiny picture frame. So I have always believed that art is everywhere. It just depends on how you frame it. 

Born in Berkeley, California, but raised mostly in the tiny town of Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, I graduated manga cum laude from Kenyon College of Ohio with my BA in Studio Art and minors in Music and Anthropology. My recent work seeks to challenge binary thinking by exploring the potential of multicultural, bisexual, and other intersectional creativity across mediums, and to encourage tenderness -- an expression of love I believe requires empathy but also action -- through collaborative artmaking.
