Based in Washington, D.C., I have freelance photographer contracts with Reuters and The Associated Press. I was among the team of Reuters photographers who covered the Freddie Gray protests in Baltimore in late April and early May 2015. I am accredited to the U.S. Senate Press Photographers’ Gallery, and I am a professional member of the National Press Photographers Association. My work has been recognized by the National Press Photographers Association and the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar. I studied photojournalism and received an M.A. degree from the Missouri School of Journalism on a Fulbright scholarship. I earned a bachelor’s degree in international relations, with high honors, from Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey.
