I'm an assistant professor of photography at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Originally from Michigan, I earned an MFA degree in Photography and Related Media from Purdue University in Indiana. Shortly thereafter, I relocated to Turkey and taught at Sabanci University in Istanbul. I have been a visiting artist at Newcastle University in the UK; and an artist-in-residence at the Arteles Creative Center in Finland, the Tsarino Foundation in Bulgaria, and most recently at Listhus in northern Iceland.

I'm a photographer working with digital and film processes. I make pinhole cameras and use them along with similar techniques in my creative practice. I sometimes make videos, too. I'm often inspired by the natural environment and like to consider the ways we collectively understand, use, and preserve the land.
