We are all time travelers here.
Photographs and film are transportive tools that are all too happy to place the observer right back in a moment of time to feel the bittersweet pangs of nostalgia. Whether it's a portrait of times past or a film that encapsulates the spirit of the times in which it was made, both have the potential to put your mind and emotions squarely back in that time and place.
That is my ultimate goal as a photographer and filmmaker. I am interested in documenting the world around me as a way of earmarking time and hopefully transporting the viewer back at some point in the future. This is not only a personal endeavor for myself but also an external one, with the hopes of helping others find the space to time travel as well.
I picked up a camera for the first time while taking a darkroom class my senior year of high school and quickly fell in love with the time spent developing images that people have yet to see. Beyond the darkroom, I slowly began playing visual games through the lens; looking for new perspectives, expressions, and eventually, stories to tell.
After graduating high school, I put down the camera for a while and spent time in Boston and the surrounding New England area as a professional dancer. I have since found my way back to the lens and back to Boston. My interest continues to lie in documenting and telling stories with photography and increasingly in film.
