I am a photographer based in Washington, D.C., and most enjoy photographing stories that highlight triumph over adversity, places that intrigue me, and people. 

I believe that images have the ability to impact our perspectives and actions, which can help lead to positive change. As part of my efforts, I work with not-for-profits to create images for their advocacy and outreach initiatives. Since photos can affect the way we perceive people, when creating portraits, I seek to build a rapport with my subjects so that I can better draw out the aspects of their personalities that they are hoping to convey. Most of my clients seek portraits to enhance their online presence or to add to their family photo albums. More recently, I’ve been turning my attention to photographing places that have special meaning for me, to express parts of myself in them or because they present an interesting dynamic that I want to unearth.
