I’m currently a staff photographer for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News based in Philadelphia, Pa. Photography is a way for me to meet new people, learn new things and communicate meaningfully about the human experience.

I was born and raised in St. Louis and graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. Previously, I was a staff photographer at the Columbia Daily Tribune and a photo intern at the Boston Globe, Tulsa World and San Antonio Express-News, and a photographer, videographer and photo editor for the Columbia Missourian. I’m a member of the National Press Photographers Association.

My work has been recognized by College Photographer of the Year, the Associated Collegiate Press, the Hearst Journalism Awards and the Missouri Press Association. I attended the Eddie Adams Workshop in 2015 and the Missouri Photo Workshop in 2016.
