Quincy, IL, United States
I can't remember when I first became interested in photography. I do remember getting lost in old shoe boxes of pictures for hours on end. I took a black and white film photography class in high school and instantly fell in love the first time I saw a photo I took slowly appear after soaking in the developer chemicals. In college I worked for my college newspaper and continued my interested and curiosity of photography winning awards and scholarships along the way.
After graduating, I was accepted into the Peace Corps where I was an HIV/AIDS educator in Swaziland, Africa. I took my camera along with me and used it to document the struggles and to aide UNICEF.
After returning home I moved to Clarksdale, Mississippi and took a job as the affiliate coordinator of the local Habitat for Humanity chapter. I continued to document life around me from the blues musicians to the social and economic struggles of white and black in rural America to the farms' struggles to move away from cotton.
About to be married, I will be moving to Quincy and look forward to the adventures and photos that Quincy has to offer.
