"You don't take photographs, you make them"
- Ansel Adams
I am a Chicago based fine art photographer with a background in High Altitude Photography, Biology, and Fine Arts. The art of making a great photograph starts with an idea and developing that idea. My work is series of ideas that focus on my presence in this world. As a Queer artist, I take influence from the LGBTQ+ community and through constructing elaborate scenes allow people insight to how colorful it is. I challenge misconceptions and stereotypes associated with my identity along with others in the community. Representation is important in the Art world as well as, inclusivity, and diversity, and I strive to make work that anyone can relate to.
