I am an editorial/reportage photographer and media studies scholar based in San Diego, CA, with an MFA in Photography and over a decade of experience as a photojournalist and photo editor for news organizations. Though I shoot a multitude of subjects for my clients and commissions, my personal photographic and scholarly work focuses on rethinking visual representations of gender, race and sexuality in documentary image-making.
My documentary film work has screened from Los Angeles to Paris, my writing on media has been published in magazines, academic journals and news media trade journals. I was a 2016 Visiting Fellow at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism of Harvard University, researching and writing about how to improve inequities behind the documentary camera. My Nieman Reports cover story on visual journalism's lack of diverse perspectives was awarded the 2017 FOLIO Ozzie for Best B2B Single Article.
I'm also a founding member of RECLAIM Photo. Check it out to take the global survey of photojournalism professionals.
