About

I’m a freelance digital content creator, photographer and videographer with a strong draw toward human interest stories and causes that elevate the social good.

I was raised in Miami, though I’ve lived or traveled in a variety of places from New Orleans to Delhi that have vastly impacted my world view, instilling in me a respect and love for the earth and its natural inhabitants and a desire to communicate about our shared humanity.

After ten years of working in non-profit programming, I decided to place more attention on the power of content creation and advocacy in the context of our digital media landscape, enrolling in the University of Washington’s Communication Leadership program. While in the program, I was awarded a Puffin Fellowship in Digital Media and Human Rights by the UW Center for Human Rights, where I worked to increase public participation in support of human rights in El Salvador through documenting and sharing stories of survivors of crimes against humanity.

In short, I like exploring and making media in an attempt to reveal the intrinsic emotion in a story, a space, a moment, or a movement. My ultimate goal, however, is to work collaboratively to create a lasting positive change in perspective or behavior.

I’m communal by nature and greatly enjoy working with a team, but I’m happy to be a one man crew if that’s what fits your project needs. Feel free to reach out to talk about your project ideas, or just to say hello.
