MY PHOTOGRAPHY AND WRITING PHILOSOPHY:
My philosophy is to capture visual and written narratives about people through authentic, deliberate, sustainable travel experiences. As a professional photographer and writer, I prefer to travel at a reasonable pace. Slowing down while traveling elevates the strength of my creative voice and establishes life-affirming friendships with the local culture allowing me to use that connection to provide you with the best possible narrative.
As a content creator, I specialize in Cultural and Heritage Media within the travel and humanitarian industry. You will find my portfolio site here (currently being updated).

MY PROFESSIONAL STORY & EXPERIENCE:
I have been photographing everyday life for over ten years, with the last four years specializing in Cultural and Heritage Media. My photography style documents candid, unscripted moments. I have a natural ability to place people at ease when photographing them, helping me to capture authentic moments. My photo-editing process is minimal to keep the integrity of the moments I am documenting.
I started travel writing within the last five years. My favorite form of writing is long-form narrative, but have crafted listicles and guides for publications, too. I run all of my writing through an editing platform before submission, and I also work with a professional editor for reference, when needed.
I take continuing education seriously. Each year, I attend conferences, writing retreats, take online photography and writing courses, and read a plethora of books on business and my craft.
