I grew up in the piney hills of PA, where I developed a deep love for hiking trails, peanut butter, and ghost stories. After receiving my BFA from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2015, I relocated to Kansas City. Midwestern peanut butter appeared to be the same, but I still decided to return to the place I call home and focus on ghost stories of my own.  When I'm not making art, you might find me tap dancing, jamming on my piano, or playing Sudoku.
