I am an American photographer based in Nairobi, Kenya. In 2008, I received my B.A. in Cultural Anthropology and Conflict Resolution from Colorado College, and graduated from the International Center of Photography’s photojournalism and documentary photography program in 2010.
After leaving a career as a professional figure skating coach, I set off to photograph in Sudan. I lived and worked in South Sudan for two years covering the news and photographing special reports for Reuters news agency.
Over the last few years I have photographed mainly in South Sudan, rebel controlled Sudan, Somalia, and rebel controlled Myanmar.
My photographs have been published by: The New York Times, BBC, Al Jazeera, PBS, NBC, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, and TIME.
