About Faculty Department

Faculty Department began with a curious eye and a desire to document the lives of people who influenced me on my creative path. These individuals, noteworthy in every way, were my teachers.

First released as a book, Faculty Department (2014), the photography essays within focus on the lives, spaces, and stories of creative individuals worldwide. Since the inaugural publication, I've been working closely on the second book and am excited to share Faculty Department Volume Two (2019) later this year.

Throughout these stories, whether at their home or studio, I am often inspired by more than just their process—how the smallest intricacies in their daily lives contribute to making them the most effective, most happy, and most real.

I hope that within these stories, you'll find reminders of the simple things which make life meaningful for all of us.
