Hi there.

I'm a freelance photographer and journalist, and a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. I graduated twice from the University of California at Berkeley—first for a bachelor's degree in history and mass communications, then for a master's degree in journalism with an emphasis on narrative writing and photojournalism. I have a background in nonprofit work, specifically around reproductive justice issues, and have volunteered my time as an HIV prevention counselor with the Berkeley Free Clinic and as a student editor with San Quentin News, the inmate-run newspaper at San Quentin State Prison.

My great inspirations and joys include: human connection, narrative and creative nonfiction, impeccable storytelling, road trips, the wild outdoors, coffee, parenting, burritos, bourbon, social justice, neuropsychology, interior design, my little family, and my wider community.

In storytelling, I find myself coming back over and over to explorations of home—people’s relationship to geography and the places they call home; the stories of couples and families at home; and the ebbs and flows of life milestones and the birth/death cycle.

I currently live in Berkeley, California.
