"As a Brooklyn-based documentary and portrait photographer, I explore the human experience and the world around us. My background as a man of color, adoptee, and Navy veteran drives my passion for visual storytelling, the examination of cultural norms and societal narratives. My work seeks to reveal the essence of my subjects and challenge societal designations. I have traveled both nationally and internationally to capture biographical portraits, document class and racial equality, and capture candid moments in time. My images invite the viewer to understand my perspective and convey the humanity, integrity, and truth that exists in all of us."
