In 2002 I moved to Philadelphia as a participant in City Year, a national service organization dedicated to serving youth through in-class support and after-school programming. I received a BA from Tyler School of Art in 2008, spending a year studying in Rome. While in Philadelphia, I started the Bell #3 Figure Drawing group, a weekly meetup for local artists. I moved to NYC in 2010 after accepting the position of Residence Director with the New York Arts Program. Currently, I work in the darkroom for the International Center of Photography and the equipment center at the New School. In 2015, I was inducted as a resident artist at El Barrio’s Art Space at PS 109 in Spanish Harlem.
