Artist's Statement

"As someone who has always found her own life incredibly uninteresting, I decided to pursue a career of documenting other people's stories. It's such a privilege when people allow you into their lives so that you can share their unique stories with the world. From Boston, Massachusetts to Albuquerque, New Mexico to the gold mines of Eastern Congo, I have traveled the world documenting people's experiences, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon."
