I am a nationally-awarded photojournalist and Photo Editor with 4+ years of experience. I enjoy telling stories in both photography and video that make an emotional impact.

I have covered news events both locally and internationally, including the migrant caravan in Mexico, California wildfires, presidential candidates, the flooding in Guerneville, and active shooters. Most recently I photographed the Kincade Fire for the AP for two days. I recently produced and filmed a documentary called “Migrantes” about the caravan. I also shoot portraits for families, weddings, and commercials.
