I am a New York transplant by way of Las Vegas, Indiana, and San Francisco. Since moving to New York, my photography has been my way of transcribing the magnitude of the city into smaller nuanced moments that focus more on the transcendence and spontaneity of my new surroundings. The Wilderness Project is a further exploration, a psychological and sometimes anthropological study of those themes translating these themes into an animal vocabulary exploring the dense and tangled wilderness of the city and its feral inhabitants. You can find the animals at their internet home here.
My work has been featured as an Editor’s Pick in Musee Magazine, Landlock Photo’s ‘Creatures of Habit’, Wordsmiths and The American Guide, covered on Flavorpill and Examiner, published in The New York Times, TimeOut New York, Brooklyn Magazine, American Theater Magazine, Dramatics Magazine, on the cover of Phil Pickens’ debut album Sweet Tea Circus, on the cover of The Hollows’ live album Neverending Show and exhibited at Other Voices Gallery in Las Vegas, Local Art Project, PowerHouse Arena, Salt Space Gallery and Limner Gallery in New York and is currently on permanent display at Prime Grill Steakhouse, the Alley, and the Dream Hotel in Manhattan.
Recently I designed the cover of poet Arrieu-King’s forthcoming full-length, Unlikely Conditions through 1913 Press. This marks the second collaboration with Arrieu-King, having also designed the cover of her full-length manuscript Manifest through Switchback books.
My most recent series, We Move Lightly explores the the vestiges of intimacy on the landscape of the body, the elusiveness of memory, and finally the physical transformation that occurs in the wake of subjectivity. It is an inventory of ghosts stuck between moments of anamnesis. If in the end you can step between these photographs, you will be permitted a brief trespass and the ability to resolve the time you thought was lost into a healing shape.
