Telling Stories

I’m a documentary photographer, writer, media strategist and online campaigner based in Washington, D.C. My passion is telling stories through creative photography projects. Having spent years working in the public interest as a journalist and at NGOs, I’ve always sought to
make a positive difference in the world. Now, as I embark on a journey as a humanitarian photographer, I’m still driven by a desire to make an impact — to use my storytelling skills as a writer and photographer to enlighten, educate and motivate.



“There is one thing the photograph must contain — the humanity of the moment.”
~ Robert Frank




Witness

Whether you call it documentary photography, photo journalism or reportage, I feel most at home when I’m out in the thick of the action. I’m a veteran journalist with many years experience covering breaking news under deadline pressure.

Chasing the Decisive Moment

Documenting and interpreting the world around me with my camera is what drives me. While I’m drawn to all types of photography — from portraiture to cosplay — there’s something romantic about street photography and the magical way it connects us to different eras, places and cultures. At its core, the photographs reveal something universal about the emotions in the human face or the way people go about their daily lives, whether it’s wandering the streets in Manhattan, Paris or Tokyo.

“This city is neither a jungle nor the moon nor the Grand Hotel. In long shot: a cosmic smudge, a conglomerate of bleeding energies” ~ Susan Sontag

Chronicling Life in the District

I’d love to abandon all my possessions and wander the world, having adventures and such, like so many of the travel bloggers and street photographers I admire. But the reality is, that’s not going to happen for the foreseeable future. Instead, I’ll enjoy my vacations and short getaways as I can, and wander the streets in my own little corner of the world.
