Research interests / activities:

Originally from California and currently based in Rhode Island. I am a 1st-year Photography Graduate student at RISD with a practice extending to video, sculpture and collage. As a conceptual artist, my interests focus on our relationship with non-human animals and the various ways in which they are depicted and transformed in media and popular culture.

Recent projects have included analyzing content found on large platforms such as Youtube and Instagram and creating work using a critical, psychological and media-theory based approach.

All work can be viewed directly on my website.
