Documenting life through the capture of unposed visual moments is my passion. Working as an independent contractor, I provide editorial, public relations, documentary, event and environmental portrait photography services. My professional affiliations include the National Press Photographers Association and the American Sociological Association. I subscribes to the National Press Photographers Association Ethics Code.

My transition from a career in social science and medical education survey research began while employed in academia. My academic work provided valuable opportunities to develop visual communication skills creating photo-illustrations for educational materials, photo documentation of research projects, event photography of educational conferences, and editorial photography for online publications. My journalism skills include photography, writing, survey research, and editing of images as well as copy for publication.

I serve a diverse mix of clients that includes non-profit organizations, businesses and individuals. I especially enjoy projects for non-profit organizations including:
American Heart Association
Baylor College of Medicine
ExxonMobil United Way Campaign
High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Houston Independent School District
Intercultural Cancer Council
Jamaica Foundation of Houston
M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, University of Texas
