What I Value at 40 – A Brief Manifesto

I have often struggled and to be honest, I still do at many times, with a lack of outwardly visible success in my work. I don’t have a lot of followers, very few people will read this post. I have not won any awards nor have I been invited to photograph any stories...

The Uncomfortable Space of Unsolvable Problems

Is There a Minimum Effective Level of Compassion?

I have spent a lot of time recently thinking about the way we relate to charitable acts and what compels us to act in compassionate ways. I asked a question on my Facebook page a few weeks ago and the response to that and to my previous article on comfort and...

I live in the intersection of three worlds; humanitarian photography, nonprofit brand strategy, and the exploration of people, places and culture through photography.

The worlds of humanitarian photography and nonprofit brand strategy are related and intertwined, the pursuit of each fuels my personal growth in the other.

My time spent photographing places, cultures and people provides a creative outlet and testing ground for new techniques and ideas. These personal projects are conceived and pursued in an effort to show the value and equality of the each individual and celebrate the similarities of the human experience around the world.
