About

I graduated from the University of Michigan with an undergraduate degree in Political Science in 2004, focusing on International Development and International Relations.  More recently, I finished 2 projects in traditional black & white documentary photography at the Salt Institute of Documentary Studies (Fall 2005).  I am interested in photographing internationally, working on different women’s health and rights initiatives.

You do not play things as they are.”
The man replied, “Things as they are
Are changed upon the blue guitar.”
