                                    Say hi! 


                                  Say hi! 

I make photographs and videos at the Los Angeles Times. 

I was born in the Tennessee, grew up in Africa, and studied documentary photography and art history at Western Kentucky University.   

Before landing in California, I directed and edited "Build Me a World" a documentary feature and collaborated on editorial shorts at Fancy Rhino.

I am interested in how people belong and relate to their environment and in turn to each other. I care deeply about the rights of marginalized people and women and strive to tell their stories in new and helpful ways. 

I love community storytelling and have mentored and taught photography to inner city and foster care kids.
