BIOGRAPHY

I am a photojournalist and professor of visual journalism based in Los Angeles, CA, with an MFA in Photography, a PhD in Communication and over a decade of experience as a photographer for news and editorial 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 internationally, 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 co-Founder and Board Member of Authority Collective

For more information on my work, assignment inquiries and other opportunities, or to just say hello, feel free to get in touch. I'd love to photograph communities of color, queer folx, dance and portraits of all kinds for your news outlet, organization, non-profit or NGO!
