I am an Artist & Pro Photographer based in Toronto, Canada. 

Professionally, I specialize in Editorial Photography, Documentary, Arts & Culture portraiture, and stills for Film & Television. Past editorial roles include Managing Editor of BlogTO, Managing Photographer of Yonge Street Magazine, and most recently, Staff Photographer at Toronto's only independent weekly, Now Magazine.

My personal work employs photography in the task of exploring and creating a growing archive of the margins. Via both portraiture and street photography, I aim to push the discourse of pluralistic identities by offering images that mark the transformative power of time and history.  My street images and mixed media works blur the line between past and present, offering the viewer a glimpse of another world they might otherwise have only known in dreams.
