I travel for my photography and I'm up to almost 40 countries and counting. Whether I'm on the road or at home in Washington, DC, I love to capture moments with strangers, architecture, and lifestyle. I'm always on the lookout for light and shadows, and finding the beauty in otherwise everyday moments.

I'm passionate about social impact and spend my weekdays engaging corporations to drive social good. I also founded Start DC to promote businesses started by women and people of color.

As a photographer, I've collaborated with Whole Foods, A Creative DC, and startup businesses and restaurants in Washington, DC and New York City. My work has been featured in exhibitions at the American Institute of Architects, Capital Fringe Arts Center, Watershed Gallery, and Black Whiskey bar, and Sospeso restaurant. I was also one of 20 photographers (of 1,500+ applicants) selected by the Obama White House for its first-ever Instagram meet.
