I'm a photographer, writer and director with a focus on portraits, travel, and narrative editorial storytelling.
My purpose is to find, capture, and share meaningful stories that positively impact our world.
Whether through photography, writing or video, I enjoy working with publications, startups and brands to tell meaningful stories that spread wide and far.
Having a background in business marketing allows me to serve as a bridge between the artistic and the commercial side of storytelling.
For my project One of Many, I explore the movement of creatives leaving NYC and SF to pursue work and life elsewhere. I've captured the creative communities of twelve cities, with many more to come.
A collection of my published work can be found here.
My thoughts on staff portraits done right.
