I'm a writer, photojournalist, and contributor to
multiple international photo agencies, including Polaris Images, Sipa USA, and others. I previously
worked as a reporter and photographer for Business Insider and an overnight crime reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times.
Focusing on conflict and humanitarian issues, I've reported from the Pine Ridge and Standing Rock Reservations, the US-Mexico border, the front lines of Ukraine, Tropical Storm Florence, homicides and protests in Chicago and New York City, and more.
My work has also been published in AJ+, The Daily Beast, Sports Illustrated, The Capital Times, and others. I hold a master's degree from the Medill School of Journalism.
Random facts: I played college rugby, write historical fiction about the French Revolution, and was interviewed a couple times on Ukrainian television in the front line trenches.
