Tell me your story, and I will find your audience.

To me, the most compelling way to reach an audience is by telling a story, whether it is through the eyes of a rescue worker, animal rights advocate, or young physician saving lives. I bring stories to life using print, digital, film, video, social media, photographs, and websites. Helping people understand the world and improve their health and lifestyle is my passion. I live in Tucson, Arizona and New York City.
