Through years of storytelling, I developed a style committed to adaptability and devoting maximum effort to documentary photography. For me, curiosity has been a compass to explore the unfamiliar. I use a range of visual techniques to tell stories, enhance content, and generate modern ideas.
Growing up, I spent rolls of film on family camping and ski trips. When high school arrived, I joined the newspaper club and have been shooting photos and taking names ever since.
I've worked for a variety of newspapers around the county always aiming to improve the standard or quality and my process.
As print transitions to digital, photojournalists’ responsibilities expand. I thrive on a chaotic schedule, emphasize multimedia, and critically self edit. Empathy and ingenuity are essential to making compelling and engaging images.
I've had work published in New York Times, Wall Street Journal, TIME Magazine and more.
