I am a storyteller.

This story is one I told myself about finding light so that when I found my feet on that path, it would feel familiar.

My images are inspired by Elsa Mora, and I strive to require something of the viewer like Julie Chen.

In order to understand this story, you have to interact with the book in a way you wouldn’t normally associate with reading:

You have to turn off the lights.
