I'm a designer, photographer and visual storyteller based in Vermont. I produce creative content rooted in fun. Originally a journalist, my career began after working for a National Recreation Area, apprenticing as an actress at Actors Theatre and serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cote d'Ivoire. I studied English and Telecommunications at Indiana University, earned my Masters in Journalism at the University of Missouri and went back to school, again, to study Graphic Design. Growing up in the heart of the Midwest gave me an appreciation for small town America, friendly conversation, casseroles and corn. When not working, you can find me in the garden, at my letterpress studio or chasing down the kids.
My work has been honored by Pictures of the Year International, NPPA Best of Photojournalism, Society for News Design and the New England Press Association. I've been supported by a grant from the Alexia Foundation for World Peace and the University of Missouri “Truth with a Camera” scholarship. Some of my clients have included the New York Times, the Appalachian Mountain Club, AP Images, Tufts University, Get Out magazine, USDA Rural Development, the University of Vermont Health Network - CVMC and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. My work has appeared in publications including Popular Photography, the Washington Post and Women’s World Magazine.
