I was lucky to be raised in places that were full of vibrant culture and artistic heritage. As a child of the American Rockies, my family moved to New Mexico when I was twelve, near the arts community of Taos. I found myself surrounded by a fusion of different religions and visual traditions and I'm certain this had a profound impact on me.

I was raised in a faith-centered home that saw the value of asking questions. My parents, despite being busy with seven children, were very active in the community-- my father was even a founding member of my paedeia teaching method high school. I eventually graduated Valedictorian, receiving full funding to attend Brigham Young University (BYU).

At BYU I studied the Visual Arts and was fortunate enough to spend over a year doing humanitarian work in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and Kenya. Afterwards I interned at Harvard, where I worked as the head of the International Advertising Campaign for WorldTeach, one of the university's non-profits.

Shortly thereafter I got married, sending me on adventures living in New York City, Australia, and now finally now in London. I am currently pursing my master's degree in theological aesthetics from King's College London.
