I’m a freelance writer, photographer, and artist now based in Himara, Albania. I lived in New York City for over 15 years, working as a wedding photographer and journalist, and studying film in an MFA program at Hunter College. I’ve written neighborhood profile essays about relationships, immigration, and belonging for the City Visible section of The New York Times, and have covered breaking news in the Palestinian Territories, New York City and Oklahoma. Last summer, I packed up my entire life and geriatric cat and moved to a tiny seaside village in Albania, to be with a man I need to use Google Translate to communicate with.
I graduated from the International Center of Photography's documentary photography program in 2008 and have a BA in Liberal Studies from Cal State San Marcos. I’m an MFA candidate in Integrated Media Arts at Hunter College in NYC.
I'm available for assignments in Albania, Greece, the Balkans, and the U.S.
