BEHIND THE LENS
I was born in NYC and grew up traveling which continued into my adult life.
I have lived and traveled through numerous countries in Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa. These experiences have greatly influenced my sense of color, aesthetics, and subject matter. I specialize in documentary photography with NGOs and nonprofits. I am not limited to this genre which includes galas, events and portraits and lifestyle portraits. I am drawn to focus on projects exploring themes of our commom humanity and response to shared experiences of life.
When I am not traveling I live in New York City.
I have worked on projects which include:
International Rescue Committee, ArtTable, DEFY Ventures,Covenant House,Behind the Book, ,Change for Kids, FOCOS, ExpandEd Schools, CUMAC,Calpulli Mexican Dance Co, Afroreggae, Nationall Psoriasis Foundation.
