These images are a part of a continuing body of work that tells the stories of songs through photographs. The images in this series are based loosely on “Blame it on the Tetons” by Modest Mouse. This shoot focused less on the lyrics of the song and more on the beauty of the place, with the character finding a map and following it across the valley until she finds her treasure.

Life of a Balloon: This video is about the lack of choices many of us do not make. . We are happy just to float along until disaster happens.

This is a video was created for an animation class at our local college (Kellogg Community College). Battle Creek has a colorful and interesting history. Our city attracted many different people due to it’s openness and tolerance for non -conformist . Battle Creek has been known as The Advent Town, Queen City, Health City, Army City, International City and Cereal City. Our history includes many great pioneers such asSojourner Truth, Erastus Hussey, Ellen and Elder James White, Dr. John D. Kellogg and C.W.Post.
Now during most hours our city streets and parks seem quite empty. At times it seems quite lonely. Our history seems to echo sounds through its structures . The city street scenes were shot during what would be considered high traffic times.

Images are from a semester long (and still ongoing) series called “Two years and counting” where I pair photos that have to do with the past 2+ years along with writings about specific events that have deeply effected me in this time.
Most, if not all, of the subjects touched upon in the series are things that I never truly got to analyze in depth or talk about to anyone where I truly felt listened to. The purpose of this series is for personal catharsis, to be able to communicate what I have been unable to through these past years.
These images along with the writings will be put into book form, and take on a journal-esque aesthetic due to it’s extremely personal content.
The images show recreations of actual events, representations of daily life, emotions, and struggles I go through; as well as putting across ideas of how I think about myself.

In this series, I sought to converge my photography with graphic design. After editing the photo in photoshop, I use Adobe Illustrator to manipulate how a viewer’s eye may see the subject. I am interested in how the audience views these images in a hierarchical sense with the use of graphic elements, as well as how they may engage or respond to the subject. My background in ballet, as well as my collaboration with a dancer on campus allowed me to create and develop the aesthetic and concept for this piece.
Inspired by editorial magazine layouts, modern lifestyle publications and the fashion industry, I strive to create a visual experience that is captivating and compelling, where all elements are strategically placed with purpose. “
