I’m inspired by human interaction, what makes people fall in love, and honest storytelling.
My work is a blend of photojournalism and art.
Fell in love. Swam in the Mediterranean. Ate 5 star spicy Indian food.* Spent a month photographing some amazing little girls at an orphanage in Thailand. Made a full-length documentary.* Danced my shoes off. Climbed a mountain. Did a headstand for 4 minutes.* Worked for a nonprofit I’m passionate about. Coached a kids soccer team.* Overcame my fear of singing in front of people. Won national photojournalism awards. Took serious ongoing salsa lessons.* Laughed so hard I cried. Gave something meaningful of mine to a stranger* Cliff jumped. Lived in Beijing. Photographed some of my favorite musicians. Played in puddles. Mentored some amazing teen girls. Helped someone I love learn about photography. Earned Bachelors degrees in journalism and international studies. Saw the Taj Mahal.*
*Works in progress.

Situated in northern Thailand, Eden House girl’s home provides a safe, nurturing and peaceful atmosphere for some very special little women. In Thailand, girls from tribal villages without citizenship are considered members of the lowest caste of society. Without documents, it’s difficult for the girls to live a normal life. Documents are necessary for getting a job, going to school and other everyday tasks. They’re left with few options, and the most grim of those include working for the black market sex industry. Eden House provides an alternative.
