Visual Storyteller

Leading visual storytelling that creates empathetic connections between people and communities.

I guide visually rich multimedia projects that help mission-driven clients tell their stories on the web. I blend a deep understanding of the creative process with managing logistics — planning, organizing and meeting deadlines — so projects run smoothly. I’ve led an award-winning photo and video team and prior to that, created issue-based collaborative multimedia projects at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Since 2020, I’ve been learning web design and development to approach digital projects holistically.

When I'm not storytelling, I wander the woods and waterways of Western Pennsylvania. I am a creative dreamer and collector of ideas who loves to knit and get lost in photo archives.

I focus on documentary-style photos and videos and expanding my skillset, including UI/UX design.
