About

I bring a diverse background to the fields of photojournalism and filmmaking. I have a B.A. in International Relations and Biology from Bowdoin College. Prior to my career in photography and video, I worked 10 years in finance. Since earning a Masters in Photojournalism from the University Autónoma of Barcelona in 2006, I’ve been a regular contributor to The New York Times, the Boston Globe, Intelligent Life, Education Week and AARP. I’ve also published images in hundreds of other newspapers and magazines all around the world, including Time Magazine and National Geographic Traveler.

In 2011 I was one of the founding members of Prime Collective, an international collective of documentary photographers, whose goal was to provide professional support and guidance for its members in the challenging freelance photography market.

In 2012 I jumped fully in to video. As my focus moved towards video, I left Prime in 2016. I won awards for several short docs including “What More Could You Ask For” which was accepted in to the Emerge Film Festival and was featured on BBC World News America as well as Maine Public Television. Since then I have been a regular contributor working as a Director of Photography on projects for CNN.com, Education Week, NBC News.com and Blue Chalk Media.

No matter what medium I am working with, I am dedicated to telling stories that resonate. I seek stories that aren’t being told and attempt to tap into emotions that challenge the viewer.
