I am a 21-year-old photographer and student from Saint Paul, Minnesota. I nearly pursued a photography degree in New York City, but sometimes I believe fate, not just financial aid, swept in to save me from it. I spent two years at the Eastman School of Music studying vocal music education before ultimately choosing to major in French at the University of Rochester with a minor in cognitive science, all experiences which inform one another.

I have collegiate-level classical voice training, several years of advanced choral experience, and a combination of formal experience and self-taught proficiency on a handful of instruments. I have been photographing passion projects and freelance work since 2013, and will be completing an internship (now remotely) with Visual Studies Workshop in the summer of 2020.
