Born in Connecticut in 1992, I graduated from Olin College in 2015 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. From 2014-2015, I studied studio art under Carlos Dorrien and Bunny Harvey at Wellesley College. Since 2016, I have been based in Cambridge Massachusetts, working in aerospace and fusion energy research.


Painting has persisted across time as the truest method of capturing images within the human experience. The advent of photography has underscored the unique value of its expressive, idiosyncratic potential. My work explores traditional methods through an engineering lens, aiming to convey the experience of sight to the “greatest and most natural” extent. I divide my time between researching and developing new tools, working in my apartment studio, and painting outdoors.
