I could never choose just one subject to study, so I decided
the best route to learning about everything was to become a journalist. I was
When I was 22, I took my first job in Sarasota, Florida
because of a book I read. Three years later, I decided to move to West Africa
and start freelancing based on some music I heard.
To me, being a photographer and journalist is about getting
to know people and understanding the complexities, details and beauty of their
situation. Everyone has a story to tell, and I never forget that it is a
privilege to be allowed into the lives of strangers.
I speak French and English. I speak some Wolof and am working on Japanese.
My clients are publications and international NGOs and
organizations. I have worked for The New York Times, the Associated Press, the
United Nations and more.
While in West Africa I not only fell in love with the region, but also the man who is now my husband. We have a rock star daughter named Amelia. Together, they make me laugh at least three times a day.
I am based in Washington, D.C. and Dakar, Senegal and
available for assignment.
