I was born in Pasadena, California and grew up mostly in the San Gabriel valley. I graduated with a BFA in Comparative Literature at Northern Arizona University and later studied illustration at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco; dipped into art at California College of Arts and Crafts and Laney College in Oakland; and design and photography at School of Visual Concepts and Photo Center NW in Seattle.

Out of college I worked as a freelance writer and traveled with a photographer documenting Native American pow wows and wrote stories on nature and other lifestyle subjects. I have worked as a journalist, designer, photographer, web developer and writer alongside my career as an artist.

My commercial work has been published in magazines, books, internet sites and corporate publications. In 2011, I was selected as one of 13 artists whose videos were screened by 4Culture in downtown Seattle for a year. In 2012, I helped found Studio F in the Tashiro Kaplan building in Pioneer Square. I moved into the art studio Building 30 in Magnuson Park at its outset and serve on the artist advisory board for the Sand Point Arts and Cultural Exchange.

Since 2013 I have been exploring the nude through medium of large scale photographic installation, seeking to go beyond the confines of gender and historical expectations.
