I'm a writer, photographer and filmmaker living in Seattle, Washington. I'm interested in depicting bonds between people and place, the existential weight of history and memory, and some of the joy, sadness, and sublimity experienced in everyday life.

I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. After earning a B.A. in Journalism at the University of Cincinnati and completing three editorial internships at magazines, I began working as a freelance editorial researcher for National Geographic Digital Media, Smithsonian Magazine, and others. In 2014, I returned to school to study photography in the M.A. program at Ohio University's School of Visual Communication. I finished the coursework in 2016 and am currently researching my Thesis project.

My nonfiction photography, writing and video have been published or highlighted by Aint-Bad Magazine, Cause Beautiful, Fly Over Media, Soul of Athens, and Visura Community. "Once The Ground Thaws," a narrative fiction film for which I served as co-writer and co-director, was completed in 2017 and has screened at Louisville International Festival of Film.

Based in Seattle, WA.
Available for collaborations.
