ABOUT

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 and marketing allows me to serve as a translator and 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 have captured the creative communities of twelve cities in portrait and writing, with more to come.

A collection of my published work can be found here.
