I explore queer identities, trauma and recovery, and the fabrication of histories through self-portraiture and installation.

My work has appeared in BOMBHeadmasterThe San Francisco Chronicle, SFAQ/NYAQ/AQArtslant, and others. I have created books that have traveled to the Vancouver Art/Book Fair, the Los Angeles Art Book Fair, the San Francisco Art Book Fair, multiple Bay Area book fairs, and the Room&Book Fair at the ICA in London.

I am currently a graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts
