Institute: How did your career in photography begin?

I started diving into photography my senior year for an art competition and fell in love with it all over again. I’ve been perfecting my craft ever since then.

Institute: Who did you aspire to growing up?

Growing up I was always really inspired by Artist, performer, and singer Katy Perry. My 10-year-old self always found inspiration in her charisma and creative perspective. Who she was really reflected through her work, and brought me to another place where everything made sense and felt right, and I aspired to do the same for others in my own way.

Institute: What are you currently working on?

I’m currently working on a photo book which includes my unreleased material and my writings.

Institute: Do you have an all-time favourite image?

An image by the photographer who first inspired me and my work, John Parvin, “sweet as blood red jam”
