I am a self taught documentary photographer based in Los Angeles & Oklahoma. After taking classes at a local community college to understand the ethics of photojournalism, I dove head first into personal projects. I primarily focus on women's issues and social issues. I have a keen interest in family dynamics, particularly where mental health and family dynamics intersect and affect the way one generation influences another. I tend to gravitate towards projects that I already have a very personal connection to in some way.
Beginning in August 2019 I will be working under a full scholarship for the Advanced Mentorship Program with James Estrin, co-creator of NYT Lens Blog & Ed Kashi, member of Vii Photo.
Clients include New York Times Magazine, CNN, ESPN & STAT
Feel free to contact me with any assignments.

The Men That Don't Fit In
by Robert W. Service
There’s a race of men that don’t fit in,
A race that can’t stay still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin;
And they roam the world at will.
They range the field and they rove the flood,
And they climb the mountain crest;
Theirs is the curse of the gipsy blood,
And they don’t know how to rest.
If they just went straight they might go far;
They are strong and brave and true;
But they’re always tired of the things that are,
And they want the strange and new
