:: About


I am a Nebraska-born, Chicago-raised and currently Chicago-based visual-journalist. What motivates me is my passion for photography, food, culture, writing and immersive travel. I am especially drawn to documentary work for the opportunity it affords to make an extended study of culture and life.  

I am a graduate of Ohio University, I have interned with Lauren Greenfield, attended the Eddie Adams Workshop and have experience with international assignments. I photographed a cookbook, The Chicago Chef's Table, and was a featured photographer in the book Lens on Life. My past and current clients include: Morning Calm, The Chicago Tribune, Wire, The Atlantic, The New York Times, Saveur, Der Spiegel, Chicago Public Radio, Stern, FADER, Time, Abbvie, American Ways, Virtuoso, Illinois Tourism Board, and University of Chicago. 

My ultimate goal is the tell stories with a strong narrative and a vibrant, thoughtful aesthetic.  

I am available for assignments in Chicago or anywhere else in the world.
