I'm an international photographer/videographer/editor that has been producing, shooting and editing stories around the world for over 10 years. Having lived for over 13 years in many countries in Asia, Africa, and the Americas, I have a deep knowledge, understanding and respect for the people and stories I cover.                   

Currently, I'm the Director of Multimedia for Americares, an international NGO that has, since 1979, delivered more than $17 billion in quality medical aid and innovative health programs to 164 countries, including the U.S.

Before Americares, I was the brand storyteller/photographer/videographer for Trek Bikes where I ideated, produced, shot and edited dynamic and engaging stories around the world.

In 2017 & 2018 I was the National Geographic Tokyo Photo Workshop Student Expedition leader and continue to teach when my schedule allows. 

Finally, I am an f-stop gear ambassador (http://fstp.co/jfk), a leader in adventure camera carry gear. Their gear is as rugged as my assignments and help me get where I need to go safely.
