I'm a photographer, videographer, and writer currently working in the southwest United States. I was based in Amman, Jordan from 2015-2018.

I work independently with clients to tell stories about migration, women's issues and the environment. I thrive in multicultural, multilingual settings, and frequently use my language skills in Arabic while working in the field and producing short documentaries. My favorite stories are quirky, counter-intuitive, or surprising, that shift perceptions about a community. My work has been commissioned and featured by UNICEF, the Associated Press, CNN International, National Geographic Proof, Washington Post In Sight, WIRED,  Mashable, the World Photography Organisation, USAID,  the International Monetary Fund, the European Union, Sesame Workshop, Der Spiegel, FIFA, NRC Newspaper, and more.

A wayward Cajun originally from Louisiana, I previously lived in Washington, DC, where I worked as a photo editor with AARP. I am 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).
