With a background in journalism, storytelling became an integral part of my photography. I have captured images of San Quentin State Prison inmates and Ugandan women beer brewers, but my storytelling transcends in to my fashion work — conceptualized, and (often) styled by myself, whether shooting on location or in studio.

I graduated with a Master’s of Fine Art in Photography from the Academy of Art. I also have a Master’s of Journalism degree from UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, and a Bachelor’s of Science degree from CSU Fresno.

I am based in Oakland, Ca.
