Based in New York and Kyiv, Ukraine.

I graduated from the documentary and PJ program at the International Center of Photography and participated in the Eddie Adams Workshop and the Missouri Photo Workshop.

I am a regualr contributor to  The New York Times, am represented by Redux Picture Agency, and am a member of the Visura Guild. 

In addition to general news work and covering the war in Eastern Ukraine,  I spent the last 2 years working on an ongoing  long term project about the effects of the leftover Soviet interntat (orphange) system in Ukraine.

My work has appeared in outlets such as  Time Magazine's Lightbox, The Washington Post's In Sight Column,  ABC NewsAl-Jazeera, National Geographic's Proof Blog, Burn MagazineLensCulture and featured in the HBO documentary Jim: The James Foley Story.

My project Fringe was a finalist for the 2014 LensCulture Magazine Visual Story Telling Award and  was screened at the Visa Pour L'image photojournalism festival. The project  was also featured in the 2015 alumni show at the International Center of Photography, which I co-curated. 

Position Santa was a finalist for  the 2017 LensCulture Magazine Exposure Award.

I graduated from Fordham University with a degree in history and did graduate work in public health at Harvard University and conflict resolution at Seton Hall. Previously I worked as a teacher in Poland and Italy.
