Personal Interests: 

The work that I make is always centered around the American teenager and the culture that they inhabit.My interests revolve around young people because they embody change, living in a mindset where identity has not yet adhered itself to their persons. They can adopt any identity they choose and, just as quickly, disregard it for something new. The ways young people alter themselves and the world around them has a lasting effect on every aspect of the culture they exist in. I strive to provoke the viewer to consider the ramifications of these changes, heralded by the young people that inhabit my images.
