I'm a (Black/Immigrant/Queer/Gender Non-Conforming) visual and teaching artist, documentary photographer, and freelance visual journalist currently based in the Powderhorn Park neighborhood of South Minneapolis. Transplanting from New Jersey to the Twin Cities 4 years ago, I've chronicled the contemporary American experience through the narratives and candid moments of Black, Indigenous, Immigrant, LGBTQ+ artists, musicians, performers, activists, organizers, their vibrant creative cultures, and the social movements they lead to shape, inspire and transform the places they call home - with their own voices, on their own terms.
Captured on a wide range of both new and traditional formats (35mm film, digital, iPhone, disposable, polaroid), their stories are complex, nuanced and have power to transcend digital and physical spaces for all of us to engage, think, imagine, dream and be free.
Since 2014, I’ve installed finished and on-going series in solo and group exhibitions across the nation, and guest curated gallery shows in collaboration with mid-career and emerging artists, non-profit organizations and foundations, private and public universities, high schools, and grassroots and community groups. I’ve also self-published series and collections in 8 photography books, most recently an art book, The Letter Formally Known As Q, in 2018.
In 2015, I started a small business, Brick x Brick, providing accessible creative services to local organizations, small businesses, and individuals to elevate their vision for social impact and change in their communities.
