I am a self-employed photographer and videographer. Currently in school for my PhD (UIC), I work in the community and with youth in Chicago. I am originally from Evanston, IL and went to Carleton College in MN. I spend my time creating art and media that communicates truth that inspires and propels consciousness. I have a 5-year old daughter, and am very interested and familiar with all of the performing arts. I love to travel. So far I have gone to Philadelphia, New York, Oakland, and Yellow Springs, OH. I recently got back from Burkina Faso and Togo! Beautiful places, beautiful people.
