Me, 9, getting my bobcat Cub Scout badge, 1992 Montgomery, Alabama.

 

I am a photographer because I believe that relationships foster a deliberate life. Relationships are the core of collaboration and intimate storytelling. Relationships create change.

My personal work documenting justice issues, and marginalization and memory in America is where I find these deep relationships and conversations. Editorial and commercial clients are the bulk of my work, and I also love working with other entrepreneurs on company branding. Otherwise, you can find me reading about astrophysics or instagramming my cats at #sprickers.
