            Born in La Jolla, California and raised in Switzerland, I work with film, intimate media, and paper. 
My work is included in the archives of the Film Department at The Museum of Modern Art in New York and has been shown at Palais de Tokyo in Paris and Galerie für Moderne Fotografie in Berlin. My work has been featured in Vogue, Purple, The Paris Review, and T: The New York Times Style Magazine.
          “Beyond all critical and intellectual explanations, beyond all negative aspects it might posses, photography is, I think, a formidable visual language for fostering this desire for the infinite that inhabits each of us. As I have said before, it is a great adventure in the world of thinking and looking, a great magical toy that succeeds in miraculously bringing together our adult awareness and the fairy-tale world of childhood, a continuous journey in the great and the small, into variations, through the realm of illusions and appearances, in the labyrinthine and mirror-like place of the profusion and of simulations.” 

 Luigi Ghirri, ‘The Open Work’, (1984)︎︎
