Biography

Experience

I am from Whitefield, Maine where many of my photographs are taken and music is inspired.  My interest in photography and music started during my early childhood after showing interest in disposable cameras and a small piano keyboard. Throughout the years, these interests have shaped my life in many ways.  My photography often is accompanied by my music in short videos and my music's album artwork always features my photographs. 

My work is often influenced by current events. For example, I created an ongoing photo series titled, COVID-19.  As a pandemic and civil unrest unfolds, I have become an activist using my skills to document these significant events. 

I am currently working as a production assistant to Roger Sherman and volunteer photographer with the Maine Conservation Corps.
