Washington, DC, United States
I am a photographer, filmmaker, and multimedia producer. My practice is heavily rooted in anthropology, which I studied at UNC-Chapel Hill as an undergraduate. At the time, I worked with the Rogers-Road Eubanks Neighborhood Association to improve their community programming and services, such as literacy classes, street soccer games for youth, and after-school programming. I later lived in Bolivia where I studied the “Vivir Bien” development model and worked with a community of women and domestic violence survivors to create a photo-based multimedia project about women’s resilience in the face of climate change impacts.
I received my M.A. degree in New Media Photojournalism from George Washington University's Corcoran School of Arts and Design in 2017. For my thesis project, I created a multimedia documentary web and book project, Only the Bridge Matters Now, that explores and tells the stories of the metaphorical bridge linking the Bolivian communities of Northern Virginia to their region of origin in Bolivia. By sustaining tradition, memory, and an immense love for their hometowns and cultural identities, the communities keep families and themselves united.
I now split my time between Bolivia and the D.C. area. I seek to build bridges by decolonizing stories, remembering the past, collaborating, questioning, and working at the intersections of artistic, scholarly, and journalistic disciplines.
