I’ve enjoyed documenting a diverse array of stories, making images of remarkable people from all walks of life. Sometimes I enter their lives for just a few moments; other times it's for months or years. I am in their debt. Whether photographing locally or internationally, I look for chances to learn, collaborate and offer perspective on the unique as well as the universal.
My work has been published in National Geographic PROOF, New York Magazine, The New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Syracuse Newspapers (Syracuse, NY), ONE.org and Global Post, among other outlets. During my 21-year tenure with The Post-Standard in Syracuse, NY, I was recognized by the National Press Photographers Association, The Associated Press, The New York Publishers Association and the Syracuse Press Club. I recently left my position at the newspaper to complete my master’s degree in Multimedia, Photography and Design at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Exhibitions include Photoville in Brooklyn, NY, ArtRage Gallery in Syracuse, NY, and Light Work in Syracuse, NY.
I believe sharing stories that elicit empathy and wonder, leading people to ask, "What would it be like to be that person or live in that place for just a little while?" is crucial in helping people find and strengthen common ground.
