This is a portfolio of art works from 2005 to Present.
Born and raised in Nebraska, where I earned my BFA, I went on to complete my MFA in Photography at Indiana University–Bloomington in 2007. I have been teaching in higher education for 14 years; including time spent as an adjunct at Nebraska Wesleyan University, DePauw University and Columbia College, followed by 7 years as an an Assistant Professor of Art at Portland State University.
My work has been exhibited nationally and published internationally; most recently in Fotograf from the Czech Republic and Voices of Photography from Taiwan.
I am currently engaged in a long-term photography-based artist book project titled Onomasticon: A Vocabulary for Nowhere. This work can be found in the collections of The Museum of Fine Art, Houston, the collection of Charles Dee Mitchell as a promised gift to the Dallas Museum of Art as well as the libraries of Yale University, Indiana University–Bloomington and the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.
All of my work is shaped by curiosity and a concern for our social landscapes—using a camera to explore how we, as individuals and a society, are affected by our civic, commercial and personal environments.
