"I live for moments of transcendence that arrive while making my work. On the thick of the dance floor, or while being present with a subject in studio. I show the world as I experience it: imperfect, mesmerizing, breathtaking."

"I was born in Taos, New Mexico, raised in Chicago, and moved to Brooklyn eight years ago, and soon began photographing creatives. Artists, drag queens, dancers, and more. I prefer shooting film these days."

"I have focused on photographing performers and artists in New York for nearly six years now, and I am constantly inspired by them. It takes enormous conviction to be an artist here and to bring new expression into the world. This is an important contribution to society, and people deserve to be aware of these artists’ lives, their work, and their courage."

"Lately, my work is an adventure. I prefer to go explore, push my boundaries, live outside my comfort zone. That is where I make the best work. I carry a small camera with me. It's an afterthought to the experience. I live for the nighttime. I go out to clubs, to events, to performances. And I capture what I see there, what I find remarkable. I try not to over-think it."
