I am a freelance documentary photographer and photojournalist currently based in Ontario, Canada, available for humanitarian and commercial assignments. 

My work explores significant social and spiritual themes. I am interested in exploring subjects that challenge the areas of society that continue to hinder human connection. My work brings people to the fringes of society and makes them comfortable there, sharing stories to "re-humanize" those who have been dehumanized through misunderstanding.  

My work has been recognized by the Duke of Edinburgh Awards and the InFocus Photo Exhibit and Award. I am a graduate of the studio art program at University of Guelph and the photojournalism program at Loyalist College. My work has appeared in publications such as The Globe and Mail, VICE, Photographers Without Borders, PhotoEd Magazine, Play Magazine, and the Waterloo Region Record.
