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 four 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 skills by working in the midwest and eastern United States on commercial photography sets 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, where I will continue my studies for two years surrounded by mountains and rain. I work in the port in the summer months, coordinating the cruise ship bus tours all over the city. Through this position, I have continued to have a close relationship to the cruise industry, albeit from a new perspective. I have begun working more with video, text, and archival imagery.
