I'm a freelance photographer based in Durham, North Carolina as well as a Roy H. Park Fellow and master's student in visual communication at University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill's School of Media and Journalism. Previously, I was a photojournalist at the Morning News in Florence, South Carolina.

I graduated from Carleton College in 2012 with a degree in American Studies. My thesis and fellowship work explored racial and economic threads in the small town of Cairo, Illinois through original photography and historical research.

I'm from Cambridge, Massachusetts. I've also lived in Cairo, Egypt, Cairo, Illinois, big- and small-town Minnesota, and both Carolinas. I spent a summer canoeing down the Mississippi River and 39 days canoeing from upstate New York to northern Maine.

I've completed the Mountain Workshops and the Missouri Photo Workshop.

My freelance clients include The Wall Street Journal, European Pressphoto Agency, UPI, Francis Marion University and Teach For America.

My professional work has been recognized by the South Carolina Press Association, the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar and the Southern Short Course.

When I was 9, I interviewed my grandfather about boats.
