Portrait series: Currently, there are two projects I'm working on. One is exploring the cultural ideal of following your dreams into a career and the other is a portrait series utilizing instant film. A third project over the lives of people with autism will never be complete but instead a lifelong pursuit I will add to periodically.

I have been recognized by the National Newspaper Association, the National Press Photographer Association, as well as, the Texas Press Association.
