I received a BFA at Tulane University and an MFA from Louisiana State University. Summer 2022 along with my collaborator, Blake Sanders (Orange Barrel Industries), were awarded the Windgate Distinguished Fellowship for Innovation in Craft to attend the Hambidge Center Residency in GA. At Southeast, I am currently Area Head of Printmaking & Fibers and teach printmaking specialization courses as well as drawing courses in the Art Foundations program. Recently, I was featured in the 5 Global Print for the Douro Biennial in Portugal, the International Academic Printmaking Alliance’s 3rd Printmaking Biennale in Beijing, China, and a solo exhibition as Orange Barrel Industries at Louisiana State University's Glassell Gallery in downtown Baton Rouge.

I endeavor to create a space of inclusion, creativity, and collaboration in the classroom.
