I am a geographer focused on internationally shared rivers. My collection of photography reflects my profession. The various series I create have grown significantly since 2012 when I left my career to return to school and travel full-time in the Nile and Mekong River Basins for research. Following completion of my PhD I was hired to manage a project on the Mara River in Tanzania. Since October 2016, I have been working with the Indigenous (aka Native American) communities in the Missouri River Basin, and part of that work is to photo-document events and individuals. I am privileged to visit unusual places due to my work on water and honored to connect with the people living along rivers who let me into a sliver of their lives to laugh, learn, and photograph. My work would not be possible without the trust of the people I work with, and I hope that in taking their images home to the USA I can raise awareness about the changing rivers around the world and what it means for the people living on those rivers. I believe the survival of people from river cultures depends on cooperation from those living outside of their communities because that is where the changes originate.
