My artwork has garnered several different awards and honors, as well as showings at local exhibits. Some awards include several regional Scholastic Gold/Silver Keys and 2015 poster design finalist for AENJ “Make Your Mark” Youth Art Month. My work has been exhibited as part of congressional competitions, teen art festivals, and various other art competitions.

I’m in the Academy for Visual and Performing Arts at the Bergen County Academies, where I study the visual arts alongside my normal academic curriculum. My technical, and creative abilities have grown tremendously as a result of learning in an environment that heavily celebrates the arts. I am an active member of my school’s National Art Honor Society chapter.

Alongside my passion for art, I’m also a competitive and varsity fencer. I represent my fencing club nationally, as well as my high school fencing team, which recently won the NJ State Championship title for the first time in history.

I will be attending the University of California San Diego in the fall of 2017 to continue my studies in the visual arts, as well as my fencing career on the Division II collegiate fencing team.
