I am a photojournalist and documentary photographer currently based in Ontario, Canada, available for assignment. 

My work explores significant social and spiritual themes. I am interested in exploring how people heal, whether from external trauma or their own internal states. The work celebrates resiliency while reminding us that we are who we are for a reason.  The stories take us to people living on the fringes of society and calls for us to be comfortable there. 

My work has been recognized by the Royal Family, the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, and 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.
