Writing a biography is always a bit strange. I mainly want to express how grateful I am for all the opportunities I've had in my few short years of life. I've been able to travel to Dominican Republic, Zimbabwe, Haiti, New York, Washington DC, and many more places photographing the world we live in. What I love about traveling is seeing all the different, and similar, ways that people live. We really are so much alike, with our differences making us unique and therefore being something we should celebrate. I've changed with each culture I've experienced, and it has always been for the better. Burning the tips of my fingers while eating sadza in Zimbabwe. Learning to be more direct in New York. Discovering the process of growing coffee in the mountains of Haiti. I want my photography and journalism to connect the world and her people. After all, we are all brothers and sisters just figuring out how to live and love and how to make this world a little better.
