I am American by blood but was born and raised in Portugal. I was raised in a very international environment and have had the privilege of travelling and living in various countries throughout my life.
My deepest passion has always been connecting with people. Photography is the opportunity to share the stories of the people I encounter, ranging from ordinary to exotic. Whatever I shoot, the people and their stories always profoundly change the way I see and experience the world. I’m motivated by a desire to move people to think and feel differently too and am fascinated by the power of photography to change our perception and to keep us asking questions.
