Raised by a family of nomadic chickpea farmers, my diet was one of hummus, bland curries, and bizarre stews. With only a wooden spoon to play with (I named him Sebastien) and a thirst for adventure, I longed for a broader world and a broader palate. And so it was that I struck out on my own to seek my calling. After brief stints in beekeeping, professional tetherball, microbiology, macrobiology, piano moving, retail sales, and one crazy summer as an activewear model, I fell in love with the world of photography.
Primarily interested in food photography and assemblage, I am currently exploring a series of portraits rendered from various thematic objects including food, botanicals, tools, etc. inspired by the work of 19th century Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
