I am comfortable carrying a tool belt and I appreciate an organized workbench, both physical and digital. With an undergrad in history and a teaching certificate, I am also a capable wordsmith and likewise enjoy intellectual pursuits. I thrive in low-supervision environments and communicate well.
Currently, I'm available for hire as
a freelance photographer. For the past several years, I have developed cohesive visual narratives, interviews, shoots, and edits along the NPPA code of ethics for both community news groups and private individuals. I like freedom to explore and naturally seek opportunities for photos that authentically but creatively represent the situation.
