Germantown, MD 20874 
United States 


I come from the world of humanitarian aid & international development, first getting my start in as a Peace Corps Volunteer in West Africa, where I lived in a mud hut with a straw roof in a tiny village of 40 people and later in a small town of 10,000. Without running water or electricity, I cooked on a portable burner hooked up to a small cannister of gas. I perfected my French language skills and picked up Fulfulde and Djerma. After 3 1/2 years in Niger, I returned to the Washington, DC area, eventually moving back to Africa to spend 2 years in South Sudan living in a tent. I began to work professionally as a photographer in late 2007. Since then, my photography has been recognized, published, and exhibited by numerous organizations. I am available for assignments around the world.
