At a very young age I became interested in architecture, design, fashion and travel. In high school, while participating in two varsity sports (track and cross country), pursuing my Eagle Scout and retaining my Honor Society status, I also immersed myself in learning as much as I could about these areas of personal interest, regularly reading Architectural Digest and Town & Country, and visiting design exhibits in New York.
In 2017, while a senior in high school, my automotive photography on one of my Instagram accounts led me to an opportunity at Ray Catena Mercedes-Benz in Edison, New Jersey, where I was employed as a product concierge. During that same time I also worked part-time as a marketing photographer for Graylyn Design, an interior design firm in Princeton, New Jersey.
In the Fall of 2018 I entered the University of Chicago, where I currently contribute weekly articles for MODA Chicago (the University of Chicago’s premier fashion magazine and blog with 77,000 annual viewers) and the Arts section of The Chicago Maroon (the University of Chicago’s main independent newspaper).
