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 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 and multimedia producer for Habitat for Humanity International. While still photography 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 clean water, water conservation, social justice and law, and worldwide environmental sustainability 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.
