Fort Collins, CO, USA
I am a freelance photojournalist based out of Fort Collins, Colorado.
My overriding goal in journalism is to capture community's shared humanity through multimedia storytelling. I am drawn to stories that are able to surprise viewers and slowly break away at stereotypes. It is often much easier to approach a story with a preconceived notion about the subject, and find people who fervently agree with you, than to push deeper try to see it in a new light.

No looking back for Matthew
One of the first things Lori Mitchell will tell you about her 11-year-old son is that "can't" is a word he's not allowed to use. He gets himself ready for school in the morning, struggles through pushups in gym class and, during his first season of football this year, got knocked to the ground by large blockers without complaint. He does it all one-handed.
Bridle Hill Farm, cradled in the softly rolling hills of the Catskill Mountains, is a home to many. Elinor and Daniel Young have been running their business for roughly a decade, bringing in visitors from the quiet towns of Sullivan County to the bustling New York City streets so they can connect with the horses that roam their open fields.

Gun Violence in Flint, Mich.
Flint, Michigan, the birthplace of General Motors and the United Auto Workers, has one of the highest violent crime rates in the country. In the early 1980s, automakers employed nearly 80,000 workers in Flint, now it has dropped to near 8,000. During 2012 the city of 100,000 suffered 68 homicides, the most deadly year on record. Despite this depressing cycle of joblessness, poverty and crime, the efforts of people in the city to endure it continues.
