I studied photojournalism at the University of Oregon, where my work was featured in the award-winning newspaper Mosaic and the award-winning magazine Flux. After graduation, I worked professionally for a couple of Northern California newspapers, even having one of my photographs published in The San Francisco Chronicle. With a career switch, I now teach English full time but never lost the shooting bug.
Instagram allows me to always be ready to capture the moment and share it with others. The format and tools challenge me in different ways than traditional photography.
More than anything, I love people. Everyone has a story to tell, and so much can be told through our faces even without words.
There is beauty in everything, even in those objects that can not speak their story.
