DESCRIBE YOUR WORK & AESTHETIC.
My work uhhhhh, it depends. I'm literally inspired by everything. I'll say my work is a culmination of genuine interests I explore.

HOW DID YOU ENTER THE WORLD OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
My first camera was a polaroid i-zone I was like 10 or 11,  I would take pictures of my toys and flowers.  With my toys I would compose all of them in like a battle formation, they were Dragonball Z figurines.  I don't have those pictures unfortunately but I did just find my gameboy camera and found some pics from middle school of all my friends, it's exciting, I'm looking at the Nintendo printers for it.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF WORK THUS FAR?
My favorite piece of work? Uhhhh of my own stuff? I like the romantic gifs I just did, and some paintings I've been working on. 


LIST YOUR INFLUENCES IN THE ARTISTIC WORLD.
Basquiat, M.I.A. Sandy Kim, Ren Hang, Ai Wei Wei, Nan Goldin, Blood Orange, FKA Twigs. Jaime Martinez, anything kawaii, Reed+ Radar, Nick Knight, Frank Ocean, and of course my family and friends.


HOW HAS YOUR AESTHETIC EVOLVED AND WHAT WERE YOUR INFLUENCES?
My aesthetic evolved from me not giving a shit.

WHAT OTHER HOBBIES DO YOU PRACTICE OUTSIDE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
I paint, make music, skate.

DESCRIBE YOUR EVERYDAY FEELINGS IN SAN FRANCISCO.
Oh man my everyday feelings in San Francisco.  This sums it up 'fuk yes.' I just do anything and everything.  I wake up, work, and hang with lots of diff ppl and am just constantly surprised and inspired by everyone. Sf is a great place.

IS THERE ANYWHERE ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SETTLE.
Yea, Ny, Paris, Tokyo, Milan.

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE.
I'm a bit grungie with volume and black.

DESCRIBE HOW SAN FRANCISCO HAS INFLUENCE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE & AESTHETIC.
SF is the only place I have lived since I moved away from home and everything and everyone I know has highly influenced me and still does.  Like I wouldn't know much of the stuff I do now if I lived anywhere else.  I knew this was the city I was going to live in when I was a teenager, just being in the city when I was younger put me in awe and I would absorb its energy and just feel so god damn good.
