Reporter/Photographer

With a keen eye for detail and a passion for storytelling I head out every day to capture the world around me image by image, one interview at a time. Building trust within my source network and keeping an ear to the ground for emerging stories I'm like a mirror, reflecting the community back upon itself. Everything has its own narrative which I tease out of the complexity with each and every story. It's not about making a name for yourself, it's about truly understanding what matters most to your readership -- and hopefully having a bit of fun along the way.
