Regardless of the subject matter, I'm interested in depicting obvious and essential details of life that are often overshadowed by larger, more newsworthy circumstances.
In 2003 I received my BA in Fine Art and African American Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. In 2005, I founded the My Viewpoint Youth Photography Initiative on the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota, where I continue to teach and shoot. In 2011 I co-created See Potential, a community engagement/ public art project that installs documentary images on abandoned buildings to illustrate economic development initiatives of community leaders on the South Side of Chicago.
