About Me

I'm a photographer currently based in Columbus, Ohio. I graduated from Ohio University with a degree in photojournalism and a specialization in sociology. I love bad jokes, exploring the outdoors and taking photographs. 

In 2014 I was named an Emerging Talent for Getty Reportage and in 2015 was named one of Magnum's 30 Photographers Under 30. In 2016 I was named one of TIME's 51 Instagram Photographers to follow in the USA.
