My personal work focuses on women and their role within their own communities; my most recent film follows 18-year-old Maheshwari, the first person in her family to graduate high school. My professional passion is helping not-for-profit organizations tell their stories through visual media. I’ve spent time with cloistered nuns in Peru for Sister Cities International, cheered Special Olympic athletes while filming the World Games in China, and documented mother-daughter relationships in an indigenous Mayan region of Guatemala for Starfish One by One. I love meeting new people, learning about their lives, and sharing their stories.
I am passionate about helping nonprofits craft their visual voice. I tell stories with photos and video, working with each organization to form a narrative that defines their mission and inspires their audience. I love meeting new people, learning about their lives, and sharing their stories.
When I’m not shooting photos, I’m editing them at The Wall Street Journal. I am the official photographer for She’s the First, a nonprofit that supports girls’ education worldwide. My work with She’s the First has shown me how strongly storytelling can affect an organization’s message. Through social media, our blog and our YouTube channel, we share the stories of young women whose lives have changed because of education. Images create a powerful personal connection between a cause and its donors.
I want to know more about your organization and how you’re working to change the world. Let’s chat!
