I'm a photojournalist, not just a photographer. To me, everything has the potential to be a story and everyone — every brand, every company, and every foundation — has one.
I'm the founder of APhotoADay and GeekFest, a member of Women Photograph, an International Women's Media Foundation US-Mexico border reporting fellow and grant recipient, the immediate Past President of the NPPA, and an Eddie Adams Workshop Alumna. I'm also an FAA Part 107-certified drone pilot.
I earned a journalism degree from the University of Florida and began my career at Florida newspapers, where I worked for nearly 15 years. I spent over two years in Los Angeles working behind the scenes on films, making portraits of the famous and infamous, and pushing my work into a new space. Now, I work for both commercial and editorial clients who appreciate storytelling images. I have the ability to disarm people, establish trust, and build relationships quickly. That's allowed me to witness some pretty incredible moments — 1/250th of a second at a time.
My work has been recognized by the Emmys, American Photography 34, UNICEF, POYi, NPPA's Best of Photojournalism,
Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar, Southern Short Course, Casey Medals for Meritorious Journalism, and the Alexia Foundation.
I'm based in Washington, DC, but there are three international airports within a short drive, so I'm truly available anywhere you need me to be.
