As a local New Orleanian and proud Uptowner, it's hard to not be surrounded by art from a young age. Photography, and art in general, has always been in my blood. My father and aunt were photographers, and several other members of my family are various writers, actors, musicians, and painters.
I graduated from Tulane University with a dual degree in Film and Digital Media Production, and worked in the film industry throughout college and a few years after graduating. I quickly grew disillusioned with the industry, so I decided to take a year break and focus on other things. That year turned into 3, but I continued to freelance during that time as both a photographer and videographer.
During that time, I was able to travel the world, and lived in the Middle East for some time. There, my inspiration really took off, and I realized my strength as an artist was in travel photography. I love experiencing new people and cultures and then bringing those experiences back with me via my photographs. I can expose people to other parts of the world they may not have the opportunity to experience for themselves. What's art, if not that?GARDEN DISTRICT
