Originally from a small town west of Houston, Texas, my interest in photography stems from my grandfather, who kept a detailed scrapbook, containing photographs of his entire life.

I became interested in photojournalism while attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I strive to produce photographs that challenge an individual’s perceptions of situations or topics. Through stories that I have produced, I hope that people find what they might have in common with others, rather than what might set us apart.
