About me

I am a photographer from Baltimore, Maryland. I received my BFA in fine art photography from the Corcoran College of Art and Design. I earned my MFA in photography from the University of Pennsylvania. Shortly after, I received a post-graduate diploma in arts and culture management from the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg, South Africa). My work incorporates analog and digital photography to address the complexity of representation, often appropriating and manipulating photographic portraits of “The American Negro Exhibit” (1900), funk and R&B musicians, and transitioned family members.

The Art department’s commitment to craft and the college-wide emphasis on engaging classroom experiences for students captivated me to teach at Earlham.
