At the University of Washington I was a photo editor at the school paper, The Daily and I graduated with a degree in the Comparative history of Ideas. Soon after, I began freelancing for The Seattle P-I. For two years I shot as a freelancer, wandered the U.S. extensively during a four-month road trip, and rented an apartment in Buenos Aires, among other adventures. I have now been to more than 30 countries on six continents.
I later found myself in Park City, Utah, working for The Park Record and living and breathing community newspaper photojournalism. I developed my video and audio production skills as well, and in 2009 decided to return home to Seattle to enroll once again in the University of Washington, this time for a Master of Arts in Cultural Studies. I graduated in 2011 with a capstone project entitled “Race, Space, and Photojournalism: Intervening into the Inscription of Whiteness.” I plan to always continue traveling and studying, but with Seattle as my permanent home.
A bit more about me: I was selected for the 21st Eddie Adams Workshop, twice completed the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop (Mexico and India), and served as a teaching assistant for the Foundry Workshop in Turkey. My work has been recognized by the College Photographer of the Year competition, the Utah Press Association, the Society of Professional Journalists and the National Press Photographers Association. I have mentored students and taught photography for extended periods with middle school students in Mexico, with high school students in Seattle’s Upward Bound program, and with university students at the University of Washington Bothell.
I have advanced skills in Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack Pro, Photoshop, Lightroom, Mac and PC computers, website development, and Canon camera systems. I’m fluent in Spanish, I like vegan chili, skiing and playing soccer.
