I am a photographer and visual storyteller based in San Francisco. I take a multidisciplinary approach to my photography, which includes street photography, portraiture, and stills and video documentary.

Above all, I am a storyteller. I love finding and telling stories about people and the world around me. The everyday, nostalgia, and cinema are some of my biggest influences.

Maria & Aidan is an ongoing documentary project, focused on a video documentary series, while also incorporating still photography and my own original music. This work captures a young couple’s efforts to start a farm and live off the grid in Joshua Tree, Ca., in the Mojave Desert.

For clients, my areas of focus include professional headshots, lifestyle, environmental and fashion portraiture, as well as event photography. My street photography, meanwhile, is frequently exhibited in galleries and cafes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, while my editorial work has been featured in national publications including Macworld and PCWorld. I have also worked as a journalist at U.S. News & World Report and The Gray Sheet, a medical tech trade journal, in Washington, D.C.

I shoot digitally on a full-frame DSLR, as well as on 35mm film, 120mm medium format film and Polaroid.
