I am a photographer dividing time between self-initiated projects, client commissions and teaching at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. My work is based in documentary traditions while actively questioning this genre’s methods and histories to formulate new forms of visual storytelling. I work across photographic approaches from landscape and portraiture to architecture and still life, bringing these disparate modes together through careful sequencing that builds layered narratives.

I have been commissioned by Monocle, Dwell, Metropolis, The FADER, TIME, WSJ., The New York Times, WIRED, Rolling Stone, Bloomberg Businessweek, NPR, Mother Jones, Herman Miller, Google-Design, American Express, Air Canada, MASS MoCA, Whole Foods Market, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden amongst others. My prints and books are in the collections of the Antenna Reading Room, Franklin Furnace Artists’ Books Collection, Herman Miller Inc., Museum of Fine Arts Houston, The MFAH Hirsch Library, and The Houston Center for Photography’s John Cleary Library among others.
