institute for documentary studies

{the work: Somehow, Someway}


I am interested in photographing the relationship between humans and their natural environment. I believe it is important to document the impact we have on the world’s finite resources and to use these stories to learn how we can live sustainably for generations to come.
I was born in Washington, D.C. and moved to Bozeman, MT, at the age of nine. I received my B.A., in Geography, from Vassar College, where I also pursued my interest in social and environmental documentary photography. In 2009, I spent five months in Portland, ME, studying documentary photography at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies. I moved to San Francisco, CA, in 2010 to work as a Multimedia Intern for the University of California, San Francisco, where I produced a series of multimedia stories for an interactive map project, UCSF: Committed to the City.

I recently produced two multimedias on fracking in California for the Natural Resource Defense Council. Last year, I worked at Save The Bay on a campaign to save 100,000 acres of wetlands in the San Francisco Bay. Before that, I captured a series of aerial photographs of the Bay Delta and produced two multimedia slideshows for American Rivers. My work has appeared in The Nature Conservancy’s Maine Fall 2012 Newsletter, Breakthroughs Magazine, Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram, on the website of the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, and in Vassar College Miscellany News. My photographs were also shown as part of an exhibition, “Through the Student Lens, 1865-2011,” held in the Palmer Gallery at Vassar College. I live in Oakland, CA and I am available for editorial and documentary assignments.
