I’m a full-time freelance photographer and photojournalist based in Detroit, Michigan. 

At the core, what I love about being a photographer is connecting with people. For me, the experience I have in connecting with others is just as important as the photo that is made.  I tell stories through a mix of documentary photography and portraiture.

I'm an alumnus of Michigan State University, the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX) and the Eddie Adams Workshop XXXI. Prior to freelancing, I interned with The Boston Globe, The Herald (Jasper, Ind.) and The Grand Rapids Press/MLive.com (Grand Rapids, Mich.)
