I’m a disaster/humanitarian/documentary photographer, freelance media producer, and social media consultant working out of Colorado Springs, CO. I work full-time for Compassion International as a Field Media Manager, but I also do freelance work on the side.
To put it simply, I tell visual stories for non-profits.
If you had more time I’d tell you that I’m a media wild card, with a wide range of skills and talents that are adaptable in even the most extreme and demanding of environments. I produce broadcast stories, shoot video and photos, generate social media content, design graphics, write scripts, craft press releases, design websites, and manage special projects.
I care about creating influential media that spurs others to help their fellow man in a practical way.
James Nachtwey said, “I have been a witness, and these pictures are my testimony. The events I have recorded should not be forgotten and must not be repeated.” My photos are not meant to shock and awe or glorify natural disasters or humanitarian crisis; I hope my photos bear witness and provide accurate testimony. Most of all, I hope they spur others to help their fellow man.
