About Me

I’m a photojournalist based in Egypt for the past 6 years. I was born in Georgia, USA, received two BAs in philosophy and photojournalism at Western Kentucky University. Interned and worked at 4 newspapers, including the St. Petersburg Times at their peak. In 2008 I worked on a project about Uighur Identity in modern China for 9 months. In 2010 I came to Egypt, just in time to photograph the revolution. I continued and was one of the first photographers to enter eastern Libya working for the Wall Street Journal. I photographed the uprisings in Bahrain for Time magazine, and have worked in Syria twice on the government and rebel side. While in Egypt I have published several personal projects including one of fancy pigeon portraits, and another on maharaganat music. For the past 4 years I have edited and mentored photographers for PANORAMA, a platform for showcasing the best photojournalistic coverage of under-reported corners of Egypt and issues of interest to the greater Arab world. I know Egypt very well, I have worked all around the country, I speak Egyptian Arabic, and call this place home.
