Photography – Washington, DC

I have been taking photos since I was 11 years old and love experimenting with different cameras and mediums. I enjoy shooting various scenes, from animals to protests to nature.

My work has been shown internationally at Darkroom Gallery, A Smith Gallery, Delaplaine Art Center, the Center for Fine Art Photography, Touchstone Gallery, theprintspace Gallery, Melrose Lightspace, Frisco Art Gallery, Verizon Gallery, and the online annexes of the New York Center for Photographic Art, 1650 Gallery, and PhotoPlace Gallery.
