I am originally from eastern Michigan. I began my college career at Western Michigan University and completed my BFA at KCAD in 2008. After a series of fulfilling post-baccalaureate experiences, including a residency in Kasterlee, Belgium at the Frans Marsreel Centrum and joining the artist collective Dinderbeck Studios, I decided to pursue a MFA in Printmaking. I am currently a freelance preparator and co-own Dinderbeck Studios, a fine art printing service and community printshop. I completed my MFA in printmaking at KCAD in May 2014.
