I am an artist and educator working primarily in photography and sculpture. I received my M.F.A. in Studio Art from the University of California, Irvine and an undergraduate degree from the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University. I am currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Art at Louisiana State University.

My work often addresses social and emotional responses to death and memorial practices. I bring references from different historical periods into a shared visual space in order to initiate a conversation between the past and the present and to metaphorically point to larger questions about loss, how we mourn, and how we are affected by what is left behind.

My work has recently been shown at Commonwealth & Council in Los Angeles, Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, School 33 Art Center in Baltimore, the Luckman Gallery at Cal-State LA, and Schalter, Berlin. I was fortunate to receive a 2007-08 D.A.A.D. fellowship in the arts. For more information, please see the links below.
