I was born in Maryland in 1993 and raised in California. I'm a documentary photographer, film maker and writer based out of Baltimore, Maryland who has primarily focused on disability rights and representation. I suffered a spinal cord injury at the L-1 level and was diagnosed with severe paraparesis in June 21, 2016. I'm currently a VII Photo Mentor Program Photographer.

 

In 2019, I received an M.A. in Experimental Humanities and Social Engagement from NYU, where I focused on human rights and photojournalism. I received a B.A in Creative Writing from California State University, Long Beach in 2015.

 

I've published stories with The New York Times Lens Blog  and The New York Times Exposures. I've worked with other clients including Reuters and Bloomberg and Apple
