Photography Approach 

I treat all my subjects with dignity.

My field experience in remote jungles, refugee camps and slum communities enhanced my ability to research, produce and edit stories about issues ranging from humanitarian crisis to poverty alleviation to child rights.

I edit multi-media projects framing editorial information with humanitarian photos for presentation in a short movie format, online platforms or publication with detailed captioning and interview clips.

My training in black and white photography and custom printing can create specialized projects in film as well as digital stories for use as educational, campaign or advocacy tools. As a former journalist, I’m familiar with what stories peek interest and assist with media placement.

My knowledge of international development is based on working with UN agencies and INGOs, offering an informed perspective to produce strong content to highlight their projects. Client collaboration is essential to ensure key messages are delivered with maximum impact.

Hunger Strike Against SF Police Chief

Hunger strikers known as the “Frisco Five” camped outside the Mission district police station to demand the resignation of San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr. The activists protested excessive police force following a string of fatal shootings by officers of Mario Woods, Alex Nieto and Amilcar Perez-Lopez. Police officers involved in the 2014 death of Alex Nieto were exonerated by a federal jury in March 2016. Nieto was killed by a hail of 59 bullets in a public park. Community coalitions supporting the protest allege police target people of color. Chief Surh was forced to resign in June 2016 and the coalitions continue to demand police reform and cultural sensitization of the City’s largely white police force.
