A little bit about me
I've been photographing news stories since my first reporting job in southern Louisiana, where I'd often try to sneak out to cover stories without the staff photographer. Those first furtive photos of people living on the bayous, published alongside my reporting, gave way to writing and shooting for newspapers all along the East Coast.
After moving to New York City, I focused exclusively on photography, shooting for a fast-paced Brooklyn newspaper for four years. In between taking on assignments across all five boroughs, I studied fine art photography at the School of Visual Arts and completed a summer residency there.
Leaving the city for an oil boom town in western North Dakota, I found editorial work at a newspaper and inspiration for an expansive project photographing my young daughter in and near abandoned prairie homesteads.
I'm now back on the East Coast in Rhode Island, where my work frequently appears in regional publications, including Providence Business News.
I've had the privilege of meeting and photographing many small business owners across New England, creating images that reflect each venture's values and unique spirit.
