I’m a freelance photographer based in Detroit, Michigan. 

At the core, what I love about being a photographer is connecting with people. I’ve learned that the experience I have in connecting with others is just as important as the photo that is made.

I studied journalism with a minor in sociology at Michigan State University. I furthered my visual education as an international student at the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX) in Aarhus, Denmark in spring 2020. Prior to freelancing, I interned with The Boston Globe, The Herald (Jasper, Ind.) and The Grand Rapids Press/MLive.com (Grand Rapids, Mich.). I am an alumnus of the Eddie Adams Workshop XXXI.
