My work is based around the global tourism industry - specifically cruise ships - and the complicated cultural space they occupy. I first became fascinated with this industry when I accepted a position playing music on a cruise ship in 2014. I spent the following few years as a crew member on various ships around the world, making photographs and developing a visual project as I continued to perform. For this project, I used my experience from working with photography at Oberlin, and continued to improve my skills by working in the United States in the fine art and commercial photography industries between contracts.
    I first came to Bergen on a cruise ship and fell in love with the city. In 2018 was accepted into the University of Bergen’s Art Institute, and I graduated during the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020. My master’s degree was partially spent reorganizing and ordering the past work into a coherent project, and also spent continuing to work with cruise ships from a new perspective, and working with new medias like video and text to expand my project.
