I am a photographer and designer living in New Haven, CT. Photography, a long time hobby, has become my passion. My background in a variety of art forms, as well as my extensive work in both community organizing and social services, have influenced the unique ways in which I express my creativity, viewpoints, and observations. My photographs are an objective road map, exposing beautiful truths and often realities. I am drawn to people in their natural environment. For me, the most captivating images encompass moments of chance, which ignite metaphor. Images that a tell a story and make the viewer ask important questions are the ones I put out into the world. My gentle and assuming nature behind the camera allow me to capture natural moments. This is not to say I am not deliberate and persistent. My interest in human nature and the human condition, combined with my tendency to closely observe my surroundings, drive my affinity for street photography.
