New York raised and born. MFA from Yale in photography. I am interested in crimenology, psychology, sociology, and the ways in which humans connect or fail to connect with one another, costumes, sets, props, art direction, the capacity for human resilience, personal stories, family dynamics, visual imagery as a means for communicating and expressing a story, the past, the future, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety and mental health, the treatment, stigma, diagnosis, and lived experience of those dealing with mental health issues first hand, trauma, and working with children. I have had my work exhibited in Los Angeles and New York, been featured in numerous publications, and have been commissioned by reputable institutions and magazines.

Why start competing in pageants

To address my own false beliefs about ageism, feminity, and insecurities about my own failures as a child performer. To gain confidence and self-respect. To learn that life isn't about "winning." To challenge me, especially in regard to my feelings of inadequacy and social anxiety. To get back to something I love doing- performing. To own who I am. To break down false assumptions I had regarding pageantry and see my own potential to misjudge. To be humble. To be appreciative. To meet new people. To become a better person and to hopefully use my strengths to help others.
