Behind the camera

Hello! Thanks for stopping by.

As an avid explorer and keen observer, I discovered a passion for photography while traveling internationally for school, work, and pleasure.  My camera provided (and still does) a rich opportunity to engage and interact with all kinds of people, cultures, and communities. 

After 16 years in San Francisco with extended layovers in Kenya, Tanzania, and Lake Tahoe, I recently packed my bags and left my work in digital product design to pursue an MA in Multimedia Journalism at the University of Oregon.  

Here in Portland I'm building an arsenal of storytelling tools and a collection of flannel shirts while taking in the great beauty and bounty of the Pacific Northwest.
