I'm a Canadian photojournalist currently based in Brazil.
I tend to gravitate to stories around political conflict, development, polarization and social inequality. My pursuit of stories has given me some incredible experiences, some incredibly uplifting and inspiring, others truly heartbreaking. Sharing these stories - of people, places and the issues they face - is a profound privilege.
Prior to completing my diploma studies in Photojournalism at Loyalist College in Canada, I was a reservist with the Canadian Army while studying political science at Brock University, and later studied Print Journalism at Centennial College before backpacking southeast Asia.
My work has been displayed in several publications in Canada including the Toronto Star.
