Great to Zoom with Falmouth University's Press & Editorial Photography students during my U.K. quarantine about multimedia storytelling. Reminded me how intimidating it all felt…and how that feeling never subsides. But it’s good to feel uncomfortable. Uncomfortable = growth.

I do LOVE to share my knowledge and passion for photography and storytelling with others—especially when I know it's going to make a huge impact on future projects. So here's a bit more about what I can offer organizations on my photography, and the ethics of visual storytelling.
