I just try to live everyday as if I’ve deliberately come back to this one, to enjoy it, as if it was the final full day of my extraordinary, ordinary life” (About Time).

Up until undergraduate and graduate school, I saw the world through my paternal grandmother’s and father’s lens.  Their story, upbringing, and values impacted how I interacted with myself, people, and the world.  In many ways, I felt like I did not have an identity, and art was a way for me to build upon me.

My father passed away in 2015, and it was probably one of the hardest things I had to endure.  Losing a parent is a different type of loss, and it was something that I did not know how to cope with at the time.

I coped in a way that I knew best, which was embarking on a quest to see something beautiful, primarily through traveling.  From 2015 to 2016, I traveled so much that I was overloaded with images, experiences, and interactions.  During that time, I noticed that my perspective on life changed, and despite all the hardships, I saw the world as something beautiful.

I think of life in stories, themes, and patterns.  My father’s words, values, and story are always a part of me when I capture an image.  In many ways, each image created, I hope to bring it to life similar to my father’s story.
