Making Your Moments Last Forever
WHO MAKES IT ALL HAPPEN
I've always had an interest in the arts since an early age. Originally from Norristown, but I grew up in many different counties in Southeastern Pennsylvania. As a child I knew art was the only thing I was good at and I loved exploring my creative side. It became a medium of communication for me since I struggled to express myself vocally. I have been nonverbal for the majority of my life and having mediums like drawing, painting, photography, and film have created a positive outlet for me to express emotions and have fun. At age 20 I was diagnosed with autism and was finally able to understand why I've always had trouble communicating with others. Although it is a daily struggle, I continue to try and push myself to step out of my comfort zone. But I can truly say that art has made my life so much better, and I'm so happy that I get to do this as a career. I want to continue to share my passion for visual art making with others and hopefully leave them with a bright smile. I hope to inspire people to work hard for their dreams and don't let obstacles stand in their way of accomplishing what they truly believe in.
I first got into film and photography at age 15, which was when I got my first camera. I practiced with the camera all throughout high school and basically taught myself how to operate it. I became comfortable with this medium and decided that I wanted to pursue it as a career. I've always had a knack for technology, so this to me sounded like the perfect job. After graduating high school in 2017, I made the decision to study at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I studied film for 4 years and received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts degree in early 2021. Now at age 22, I have spent the past 7 years practicing and learning everything I can about cameras. I hope to share all that I've learned over the years with others through my work, as I continue to learn and progress in this field and in this business.
