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/interests include human connection, narrative and creative nonfiction, road trips, the wild outdoors, coffee, parenting, social justice, neuropsychology, interior design, my little family, and my bigger 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, work, and parent in Berkeley, California.
