I’m a D.C. based photographer who covers news, events, editorial, portrait and lifestyle photography.
My career has taken me from the small town fairs of rural Virginia to meetings in the Oval Office of the White House and beyond. I love that photography has the power to inform, inspire and evoke emotion- sometimes all three things happen in one picture.
There’s always a chance to capture something different when picking up a camera. Whether it’s through work assignment or just spending time with my family. Photography helps us to appreciate the moment so that it will resonate with us a little bit longer.
