JONES COLLEGE PREP

Photography is my entry to so many worlds.  In the same week I have photographed in a homeless shelter, President Bill Clinton and in the ER of a major trauma center.  The stories I tell through the lens reveal the human spirit and the journeys we all make through this life. My practice takes the form of educator, community activist and photographer.  My concerns frequently address the teenage years, family, memory and locality. I received a BFA from St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame and a MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
