Photography (BFA)

The faculty, facilities, and community at the University of the Arts got me to where I am today. On the day of graduation in 2015, I met a true legend and now a great friend, Sally Mann. I have been able to utilize my knowledge and skills but also continue to expand my education, learning from her with each project we work on.

My professional career has inspired my community outreach: I now also work with a fine arts collective here in Lexington, Virginia. What I experienced in Philadelphia and at the University of the Arts helped me develop my artist practice which continues to grow every day.
