I've been working as a professional photographer in Kansas City and world wide since 2004 and have had a passion for it nearly all my life. Formally educated and trained in Psychology and Pre-Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia, I use my knowledge to understand people through the camera. I've attended numerous training and workshops to develop my technical skills.
Working in a documentary style, I split my time between commercial work and work for nonprofits. The core of my work stands to promote dialogue, awareness and understanding between differing communities of people.
In all my work, I aim to celebrate the human spirit.
My work has been published in The Guardian UK, Present Magazine, KC Magazine, and exhibited in The United States Embassy in Portugal, The United Nations in NYC as well as many other places in Kansas City and around the world.
