About

I am a photographer from Nairobi based in New Haven, CT. My work revolves around my body, memory, the physicality of anxiety, and the performance of self through style and hair. Embedded in my daily inquiries is the steadfast belief that there must be a better way to experience living, devoid of the notion that one must “suffer” to have or experience good things. I am also broadening my practice to include text, performance and garments.
