I was born and raised in North Jersey and graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a B.A. in photojournalism.
In November 2014, my father passed away from cancer. Photography became my escape and my therapy. At the same time, through orally telling my father's story, I saw the power of storytelling and the difference it can make in so many lives.
I was hired by the Minneapolis Star Tribune as their first photographer in a new Duluth bureau and have since been relocated to the main bureau in Minneapolis.
I continue to aspire to help tell the stories of those without the means to tell it themselves and hope to bring about positive change through that mission.
