Though this portfolio shows my visual work, my educational background is in anthropology, specifically archaeology. Visual creativity and archaeology have always been major components of my life. Both disciplines seek to tell a story using the physical world as the basis for constructing the narrative.

From the sidelines of Beaver Stadium covering the sights and sounds of a Penn State football Saturday, to the agricultural fields of the Teotihuacan Valley documenting the drastic environmental changes in the region, my aim remains constant. It is to turn camera toward the often overlooked aspects of human interaction.

Available for hire -- Adobe Premiere editing and video & still shoots.
