As a writer and photographer, I love to tell stories in powerful, personal ways. My favorite projects allow me to help organizations and families share themselves through compelling words and images.

I'm naturally curious about almost any topic, but am especially passionate about family, community and the power of green spaces. If I have a true talent for anything, it’s for making people comfortable and letting them talk. Oftentimes, my main job is to simply show up and recognize the authenticity in a moment.

Writing for the Austin Parks Foundation and Leadership Austin has introduced me to an incredible variety of people in my community. I have helped them tell their stories through outreach campaigns, newsletters and profiles that bring heart and soul to their organizations.

SIBLING REVELRY PROJECT

In early 2017 I began this ongoing photography project to capture the spirit of siblinghood through images and interviews. I photograph siblings of all ages and backgrounds in the natural environments, highlighting the unique stories and universal truths of life with siblings.

PERSONAL ESSAYS

My personal essays, usually about family life, have appeared in print, online and on stage. For three years I co-produced Austin's Listen to Your Mother show, a live stage production featuring stories of motherhood.

FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

I'm a pro at finding the magic in the everyday, and my Day in the Life family photo sessions allow families to relax and be themselves without worrying about sitting still and saying cheese.
