I am a portrait photographer that shoots editorial and commercial assignment work. I'm always chasing after my next personal project - be it chasing light with film or simply making a connection with somebody and asking them to share their story.
I am a people person who realized in last few years that I'm also a dog person at heart. Kids and teens are particularly fascinating to me...I love watching them navigate the world with beautiful awkwardness. I love the process of discovery in whatever situation is unfolding in my life.
Through my work, I try to create imagery that is positively jarring. I aim to capture the energy that is created between subject, camera and ultimately the viewer.
In addition to my photography work, I am also the founder and executive director of KidsRise, a nonprofit dedicating to engaging and empowering the next generation of voters.
