Bio — & Information


 
I’m an American art director, photographer and visual artist utilizing analog and digital processes. Born in 1994 in Gainesville, Florida, I was adopted and  raised in Lake City, a rural neighboring town. After high school graduation, I developed an interest in arts and photography.

In 2015, I purchased my first camera inspired by moving and still images I saw online. In 2017, I graduated from the University of Florida earning a BFA in Journalism. I’m currently interning with MediaCom’s Creative Services team out of New York City. Day by day, I continue to develop as a director, designer and futurist while continuing to nurture my nuanced creativity and collectiveness.

Minor Bird
by Robert Frost
I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;
Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.
The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.
And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song.
