I am a documentary photographer based in Brooklyn, NY interested in all kinds of photography with a focus on storytelling.

A few highlights: I worked on the NBC series In Plain Sight: Poverty in America, which received a George Foster Peabody Award in 2014. My work has received recognition from the College Photographer of the Year award, the National Press Photographers Association, the Ippie awards for independent journalism in New York as a volunteer photographer with The Indypendent.

In 2011 I completed a Fulbright grant in the South Pacific nation, Tuvalu, where I produced In the Shadow of Climate Change, a photo essay which looks at how climate change impacts everyday life. Excerpts of this piece have been published by The New York Times, Der Spiegel and The Atlantic.

I enjoy collaborating with non-profit and community organizations such as Friends of the High Line, The Lower Eastside Girls Club, The Shambhala Center of New York, The Boys Club of New York and others. I studied documentary photography and social sciences at Hampshire College and received my Masters in photojournalism at the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University.
