I was born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia but can't stand the feeling of sand between my toes. I love large and small dinner parties, reckless enthusiasm and riding a non-motorized scooter.
In 2008 I joined the Peace Corps after studying Art History & French and moved to Mali, home of photographer Malick Sidibé, where I lived until 2012. From community gardens to map murals and radio-education, I loved capturing life around me in conversation, photos and video and bringing them all together by writing.
Now I'm a proud Hyattsville, Maryland resident. By day I'm an international education professional working at the intersection of higher education innovation and workforce development. By night and weekend, I'm a wife, mother, photographer, cinematographer, writer and curator of tender moments.
Let's celebrate yours.
