Photographer + Multimedia Artist
Digital storytelling is one of the most powerful and engaging tools of our time to build beyond walls – a world where the rights and dignity of all communities are respected. I've worked as a producer, photographer, video journalist and communications specialist with groups ranging from Al Jazeera’s AJ+, Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN), Public Advocates, Indigenous Rising Media, and currently, Rainforest Action Network. My work has been published in U.S. News World Report, The Hill, Al Jazeera, ColorLines, Grist, Alternet and more.
As shy person, the camera has always been a way to connect and engage with the world around me. My goal, whether it be as a communications strategist, writer, producer, photographer or filmmaker, is always to conjure empathy, cultivate compassion and inspire action.
“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
Standing Rock - Indigenous Rising Media
I had the great honor of working with the Indigenous Environmental Network at Standing Rock to help
co-launch a first ever Indigenous-led digital storytelling media platform, Indigenous Rising Media. Over the course of four months, we produced daily content from the ground, provided a much needed Indigenous-led narrative.
