I'm a photographer based in Vancouver, Canada. I first began photographing in 2010 using only a cellphone. Now, I hold a BFA in Photography from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. My main focus is social documentary projects however, I also produce conceptual art & editorial work.

My photographic practice is informed by a critical approach to the way that we create and consume images and media. My goal is to strike a balance between affect and intellectual response on various social issues. I am interested in new forms of documentary practice while bearing in mind materiality, modes of production and performance. 

One thing that has remained the same over the years is my caring heart and a desire to change the world. I believe in the pursuit of excellence and would love to hear from you if you share a similar vision.
