I’m a documentary photographer, filmmaker and producer currently based in Bangalore, India. Previously I was in Chicago as a multimedia resident at the Chicago Tribune.
I received my Master’s degree in Visual Communication from Ohio University, where I also taught photojournalism and picture editing courses. I've worked with the Daily Herald newspaper in the suburbs of Chicago and as a producer, editor and filmmaker at Blue Chalk Media in Portland, Oregon.
As a perpetually curious person, I read endlessly and ask a lot of questions. Whether through images, audio, video, or writing—my aim is to promote critical thinking, understanding and respect. I'm most drawn to stories that examine how changing climate and environments affects communities and cultures.
I am available for freelance assignments, editorial work, and multimedia projects — I love collaborating and I love to wander, so contact me if you have a great idea:
