I am an artist and educator working primarily in photography.  My work often addresses social and emotional responses to death, mourning, and memorial practices. 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 Associate Professor in the School of Art at Louisiana State University.

My work has recently been shown at Antenna Gallery in New Orleans, Texas Woman’s University Art Gallery in Denton, TX, Commonwealth & Council in Los Angeles, Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, CA,  School 33 Art Center in Baltimore, and the Luckman Gallery at Cal-State LA. I am the recipient of several awards, including a D.A.A.D. fellowship in the arts and an Investing in Artists grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation. I served for several years as a curator at UCR/California Museum of Photography and I continue to initiate curatorial projects.
