bio

I’m a visual journalist at St. Louis Public Radio in St. Louis, Missouri.

Previously, I was a staff photojournalist at the Naples Daily News in Naples, Florida after spending two years at the Tampa Bay Times as a photo intern, multimedia producer and online picture editor.

Before moving to the Sunshine State, I worked as a contract photographer at the New York Daily News - my hometown newspaper - after graduating from the State University of N.Y. at Stony Brook with a degree in sociology and journalism. The summer before that, I learned to love coffee, rainstorms and newspapers while writing 22-inch features as a metro reporting intern at The Oregonian.

I'm lucky to have been welcomed into the extended families that make up the New York Times Student Journalism Institute, the Chips Quinn Scholars Program, the Eddie Adams Workshop and The Kalish visual editing workshop. My work has been recognized by Pictures of the Year International, the Florida Society of News Editors and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. In 2014, I was selected to participate in The New York Times'  New York Portfolio Review.

I'm available for assignments in St. Louis and the surrounding areas. Past clients include The New York Times, Buzzfeed and National Geographic.
