I'm a photographer, videographer, and writer based in Amman, Jordan. 

For the last three years, I've been pursuing stories about the refugee crisis, women's issues, and environmental issues in the Middle East. My work has been commissioned and featured by the Associated Press, CNN International, the Washington Post, National Geographic Online, WIRED,  the World Photography Organisation, USAID, UNICEF, the International Monetary Fund, the European Union, Der Spiegel, FIFA, NRC Newspaper, and more.

I believe in diving deep into a community to tell stories, adding nuance and understanding to sensitive situations. My favorite projects are collaborative, blending ethnographic research methodologies and reportage.

A wayward Cajun originally from Louisiana, I can get by in English, Arabic, Turkish and French. I've received HEFAT training and am available for freelance projects and consultancies.
