History with the condition
"I was essentially silent about my depression and anxiety -- and also somewhat unaware of what I was struggling with -- until I started expressing and exploring it through my photography with a photo series called one, which evolved into The One Project. I've spent the last 7-8 years working through my depression and anxiety by staying proactive in my wellness, avoiding triggers (like lack of sleep) and also testing different tools that I utilize as soon as I catch myself with early signs. Currently, I am symptom-free on most days."
