I'm a professional freelance photographer based in Washington, DC focued on portraiture, editorial work and traditional photography (it's a living). A current personal project documenting the whimsy and irony in American pride, called "American Sequitur," was featured on the New York Times Lens Blog on May 31, 2013 and you can also get a taste of it in my interview with Eric Kim on Oct. 8, 2013.

Some clients include The Washington Post, Express, Washington Post Magazine, MSNBC, Washingtonian, ABC7/WJLA-TV,, Politico, Blueprint Magazine, Bay Nature Magazine, Strobist, U.S. Department of State, Capitol File, Popular Photography and Essence Magazine.
