Specializing in Religion
Columbus, Ohio, USA

In my work as a photographer of religion, I have developed a deep appreciation for visual storytelling and the ways it encourages human engagement and nuanced understanding. This has translated naturally into my work as an art gallery curator and exhibitions manager: I approach each exhibit I facilitate as an immersive story, one that offers new narratives and expands thinking, often about marginalized artists or communities.

I currently work at Southeast Healthcare’s Fresh A.I.R. Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, which exhibits the work of artists affected by mental illness and addiction. By bringing focus to the artistic vision, Fresh A.I.R. works to educate the public and break down stigma. I also create digital and gallery exhibitions for the American Religious Sounds Project, a collaborative research initiative co-directed by The Ohio State University and Michigan State University, which aims to offer new resources for documenting and interpreting the diversity of American religious life by attending to its varied sonic cultures.

I am available for consultations and contract work across the country.
