A quick bio…
Photographer, Journalist, Curator
I’m a storyteller with a camera, sometimes a microphone as well. My work is a part of me as there is compassion in every story I tell, whether that be along a border, on the street, in a home or in a venue. My relationship with my subjects and clients is defined by human connection, not profits or self-gain. My camera is a free press as well as a way to preserve memories. I am humbled by those who choose me to tell their story, even if it’s just a meeting or a birthday.
Santa Ana raised me.
I am on two government watchlists (and probably counting). I have received some awards for my photography work, but they are secondary to what the photographs mean to me. I am a freelance journalist union member.
My work exists between sociopolitical conflict, and preserving human emotion.
My street photography says what I haven’t put into words yet. I love biking, my parrot, my friends, the silence of the desert, and conversing.
