My heart lies in the space between memories and life, where images capture that fleeting moment of brilliance that remind us, “when this happened, we were there.”
I’ve always been a photographer. All throughout my life, there’s been a camera in my hands. I never wanted to forget what happened, who was there, and and all those other intangible memories attached to the moments we live.
Today, I make photographs that remind us where we’ve been and who we were at that click of the shutter; not just for us, but to help build a collective memory that can be passed down from generation to generation. From small town life to presidential events and everything in between, I want to create work that builds our history – not just of hardships, struggles, and sorrows, but of life, happiness, and joy.
Visitors to special places leave their mark by inscribing “I was here.”
My work is my way of saying “We all were here.”
I am currently working as a Videographer/Editor for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) in Washington, DC. Take a look at the VIDEO and STILLS pages for some of my favorite projects. Check back for more new work on our Vimeo channel often.
I earned a Master’s degree in photojournalism at the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism in August 2011, and completed internships with National Public Radio (NPR.org) and The Seattle Times.
When not working, I’m often chasing my husband, two kids, and dog around our neighborhood, hiding in the kitchen baking bread, or singing/volunteering with the Washington Revels and Alexandria Choral Society.
