I am a facilitator and educator who often works with young people in New York City. I currently teach photography at the Bard High School Early College in Manhattan.

I have taught visual and media literacy, digital photography, and alternative processes at Sarah Lawrence College’s Social Justice Collective, The New York Public Library, the International Center of Photography, Brooklyn Community Arts and Media High School, New York City's Parks and Rec Centers, Photoville NYC, and the Cheyenne River Reservation. I’ve received generous support for teaching through Brooklyn Arts Council, NYC SALT, Aperture Foundation, Magnum Foundation, and the Sioux YMCA. 

My photographic work can be found in Education Week, The New York Times, and Anthropology Now. In 2013 I received the Magnum Foundation Fellowship to pursue a longterm photographic project about a young public school teacher in Brooklyn. 

From 2012 - 2019 I managed Magnum Foundation's Photography and Social Justice Fellowship which aims to expand diversity and creativity in the field of documentary photography through capacity-building and critical explorations of photography and social change.
