I’m a storyteller. Photography, film, and words have all been my medium, but what gets me excited is connecting with people and learning from them.

I recently joined Yale University School of Medicine as a video producer, where I conceptualize, film and edit short documentaries on cutting-edge medical treatments and health research.

In recent years, I was based in Amman, Jordan, where I worked independently with editorial and nonprofit clients to tell stories about forced migration and the aftermath of conflict, women's issues, health, and the environment. My work has been commissioned and featured by UNICEF, UNOPS, the Associated Press, CNN International, National Geographic Proof, Washington Post In Sight, WIRED,  Mashable, Broadly/VICE, USAID,  the International Monetary Fund, the European Union, Sesame Workshop, Der Spiegel, FIFA, NRC Handelsblad, and more.

A wayward Cajun originally from Louisiana, I previously lived in Washington, DC, where I worked as a photo editor with AARP. I’m also currently pursuing a MA in Visual Anthropology, Media and Documentary Practices from the University of Münster and received my BFA in Photojournalism from the Rochester Institute of Technology (2012).
