An internationally traveled photographer, I use images to tell a story.

What can we surmise from a woman with chapped skin or two children walking home from school? Photography has the power to shape our view of the world, to be pulled into someone else’s story, to see something we could only dream about.

At the core – I use my photos to reveal people’s inherent dignity. Everyone is created equally before God. Our world ranks people, and assigns their worth based on arbitrary standards. Yet, our Father intimately knit each person, and I strive to reveal that.

Every person has a story, and while I might use my images to raise awareness and start the dialogue, I am by no means sharing their stories. Everyone has a story, and everyone has a voice. Some people’s voices have been quashed and silenced but, given the right tools, everyone can speak for themselves.

I hope my photography shows how amazingly beautiful our world is, and how that beauty is sometimes more obvious in places of pain and heartache. I use the photo below in a lot of what I do. It’s from the Congo. Even in the midst of war, displacement, very little hope and rampant injustice, these kids can jump and laugh and be filled with joy. Joy I wish I could somehow manage to bring into my life when I have to much to be thankful for.

If you are interested in purchasing a print,  please let me know. I am currently working on a photo shop.
