About Me

I'm a painter/performer based in Brooklyn, NY. Though I started modeling mainly to support my artistic pursuits, it has changed my work and led me to explore performance as part of my artistic practice.

I recently returned from an extended trip to Europe during which I initiated myself into the realm of street performance. Along the way, I worked with a number of photographers and my experiences led me to question more deeply what I want to get out of modeling. I thought a lot, in particular, about the disparity between the way I see myself and the way my body is observed/portrayed. I am trying to get away from creating pretty images in pursuit of a more authentic expression.

Some things that interest me: alternate worlds and selves, the V-effekt, ugliness, darkness, nightmares, Dionysian space, German Expressionism, absurdity, horror, the Duino Elegies, Beckett, analog photos, the intersection of words and images, automatism, Fluxus, passage of time, rituals, body-mind duality, mannequins, graffiti, desert landscapes, ancient mythology, the NYC subway, the stars.

Feel free to contact me to discuss working together or any of the above subjects.

I contain multitudes.
