I am an editorial, commercial and documentary photographer based in Durham, North Carolina. As a child my identical twin and I moved frequently around the American south and midwest and, as a result, I had to learn how to make new friends easily. I'm good at talking with strangers and connecting with new people. After graduating from UNC Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communications, I worked at newspapers in Florida, Texas, Michigan, Virginia and North Carolina, and my storytelling background influences my documentary approach to portraits and lifestyle work. I believe that relationships are the core of powerful images, and the quiet, little in-between moments most often reveal a personality or tell a story.
