I was born and raised in England, but began my photojournalism career in Portland, OR, stringing for The Associated Press. From there, I spent 10 years working as a staff photographer for daily papers in Oregon, Pennsylvania and New Mexico. Since then, I have traveled through Central America, India and Europe as an independent documentary photographer. Along the way I have earned a variety of awards including a Pulitzer Prize nomination, the Community Awareness Award from Pictures of the Year International, The Sony World Photography Award and the Golden Light Award for documentary photography. In 2012 I was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Deeper Perspective category of the International Photography Awards, and was a finalist in Critical Mass- Photo Lucida.

My work has appeared in Le Monde, Oregon Historical Society Magazine, EatingWell Magazine, Chemical & Engineering News, The Register-Guard, The Oregonian,The New York Times, Geo Saison, Visual Anthropology Review, People Magazine, MSNBC.com, and with Zuma Press.
