Everyone has a story and I'm here to tell it. From the time I was a young child, I have always loved stories - verbal stories that my parents would tell me before bed, picture stories from books, and animated stories on the screen. I studied storytelling in college getting a degree in theater and turned that love of storytelling into my profession when I picked up my first camera and used it to tell the stories of those around me. Since then, I have told hundreds of stories all over the world, and I'd love to capture yours.

Using photography to change the world - one story at a time.
