I'm speechless, humbled, and excited to announce my project "House of Glory", a story that documents a group of New Yorkers in their twenties from the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn as they pursue their dreams of becoming professional wrestlers has been chosen to be part of United Photo Industries and Photoville's 8th Edition of the FENCE. Thank you United Photo Industries and thank you to all the wonderful judges for this tremendous opportunity and stage to share these aspiring athletes story! I want to also thank the founders of House of Glory Wrestling school Jonathan "Amazing Red" Figueroa and Brian "Brian XL" Baez for allowing me the freedom to attend all the classes I could and showcases they hosted. Also, the biggest thank you to all the inspiring students and wrestlers at the House of Glory that opened the doors to their lives and allowed me to share their powerful narratives with the world.

The Brooklyn portion of the exhibition will be on display from June 22- September. Please come by and check out all the immensely talented photographers and their beautiful narratives that I have the privilege of sharing the fence with.
