Hi! I am currently a freelance photographer based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. My background is in photojournalism and documentary photography. I am interested in the way people relate to one another and am curious about how history impacts the present.

I studied sociology and psychology in my undergrad before receiving a degree in photojournalism.
I am a proud member of Women Photograph & Diversify Photo and founding board member of the Authority Collective
