Stories

I’ve had the privilege of writing about people in vastly different stages of their lives, including young up-and-coming actors, African entrepreneurs, incredibly strong women battling breast cancer, and award-winning authors. My work has taken me everywhere from inside renowned scientific research institutions to an old California mission to the lush countryside of rural South Sudan.

Here’s a sample of my work:
