ATLANTAN BY ZIP CODE. AMERICAN BY PASSPORT. CITIZEN OF THE WORLD BY NATURE.

This is the part where I’m supposed to write something histrionic about being born with a camera in my hand and how becoming a photographer and traveling the world was always a part of my destiny. Well, that’s not me.

John Muir wrote, “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” My path to being a documentary photographer was riddled with dirt roads and I’m all the better for it. I grew up on crisp Midwestern air, county fairs, and watching The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour with my grandmother. I like to think of myself as Pippi Longstocking meets Anne of Green Gables with a dash of Amelia Earhart for good measure.

WHERE SHALL WE

WANDER

I’m an Atlanta-based documentary photojournalist and currently serve as a staff photographer for an international NGO headquartered in the city. As well, I’m available for freelance assignments worldwide. While making still photos is my passion, I am happy to also share my video and field producer reel and resume upon request.

I love working as a non-profit, documentary, and NGO photographer, and I’m available for assignments worldwide. My primary areas of expertise and passion are access to gender issues, social justice and law, and global sustainable development issues. I strongly believe in the idea that the more specific the story, the more universal the theme, and there is nothing more satisfying to me than being part of the story.
