Born and raise in  San Francisco, I am filled with childhood memories of growing up in the 90s and being immersed in public spaces, I reminisce of the past often.

The subjects of my work are experiences that are emblems of resilience and resistance to the rapid changes of the city - Through my work, I celebrate and preserve my environment; nature, landscape, and people less prominently observed. My recent work examines the immediate surroundings of San Francisco’s physical peripheries and the subjects that take up those spaces.
