About Me

Hello and welcome to my site! I am currently a multimedia producer in University Marketing and Communication at Loyola University Chicago, where I am lucky enough to lead and work with and amazing staff photography and student multimedia team in University Marketing and Communication. Together, my student team and I have produced more than 400 videos in my nearly four years at the University.  I have more than a decade of experience working for various news organizations in Chicago and the region, including as a staff photographer for The Sun-Times Media Group and as a visual journalist for The Times of Northwest Indiana. As a photographer and producer, my work has led me from Washington, D.C. to Seattle, Washington, and just about everywhere in between. I love to document the everyday, the ordinary,and  honest moments that might otherwise be fleeting.


My work ranges widely from film and documentary photography for editorial work, weddings, children and family portraits, events; print pieces for Loyola Magazine and multimedia projects for clients such as Chicago Wilderness, Chicago Charter Schools, The Field Museum, DePaul University, and the University of Chicago. My work has been featured in the Sun Times , The Times of Northwest Indiana, The Daily Herald, Cure Magazine, The Washington Times, the Times London, The New York Times, the L.A. Times, Houston Chronicle, The New York Post, and more.


With an undergraduate degree in photojournalism from the University of Missouri, and a graduate degree in New Media Studies from DePaul University, I find my true passion lies in documentary storytelling. I am lucky enough to produce, direct, edit and photograph engaging stories about people in our world just about every day.


Do you see a collaboration in our future? If so, I'd love to hear from you!
