I grew up in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, and studied photography at University of Miami and Penn State University. Photography has been a deep-seated passion for years, and a supremely rewarding endeavor. My body of work predominantly explores photojournalism, documentary, & reportage, often focusing on political issues from environmental concerns to the ramifications of rampant sexism in our society. If I don't have my camera in hand, it's most likely because I'm hiking, kayaking, or producing documentary films.
My experience in the photographic industry is varied and focused heavily on strengthening the community. I serve on the ASMP-NY Board, and recently revitalized the Young Photographers Alliance summer mentorship program. I also freelance as a Photo Editor for Shutterstock, and was previously a Photo Editor with People Magazine.
Whether I’m working on personal projects, bringing a client's vision to life, or developing behind-the-scenes & promotional materials for films, having my camera in hand is a natural extension of self. I aim to capture critical moments, share important stories, and explore life's greatest adventures, while lending inspiration to others.
