South Sudan

The Children of Sudan

South Sudan. I feel like it's been the answer to every question I've been asked this week. What are you doing tonight? Finishing my 15-page paper on human rights abuses in South Sudan. What are you doing over winter break? I'm going to South Sudan. Why do you need all this extra photo gear? It's because i'm going to Sudan, Ma. Why are you so stressed? I'm trying to get assignments while i'm in South Sudan, and dont have one yet. What stories are you working on now? I'm about to cover the referendum in South Sudan.

I'm not even there yet, and I need a break.

Awards: Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar

Sexuality Series: Love Doll owner

I was fortunate enough to place in the feature and student portfolio categories at the 2010 Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar.

India's Emerging Light

India's Emerging Light- U.S. outsourcing of jobs and the globalization of international technology has opened thousands of jobs and technology centres across southeast Asia. Traveling to the United States to receive a stronger university education in hopes of a higher paying job upon the return home, many young Indians are now taking advantage of the opportunities that globalization has offered. This portrait series pictures nine young men from Hyderabad, India who study Computer Sciences at Western Kentucky University.

Runner Up College Photographer of the Year 65

This week has been a serious emotional roller coaster with very high ups thanks to the judging of CPOY and some downs just from day to day life. I owe VII Photo Agency, Benjamin Reed, Matt Eich, David Walter Banks, Ed Ou, and Josh Meltzer a huge thanks for either mentoring me or inspiring me to strive for something higher in my work. I owe you all.

I am blessed to be the Runner-up College Photographer of the year. Rachel Mummey, the actual winner, has an amazing way of telling stories and revealing truth through the lens. Congratulations Rachel for all of your hard work and talent.

Cover Story: TIME- Locked & Loaded

Read TIME Article

I feel truly blessed to have contributed to such an incredible investigation into some very serious subject matter. It's important for people to know that not every militia has evil intentions, the Ohio Defense Force that i photographed appeared to be made up of legitimate men and women who simply want to defend their communities. Their training definitely raises eyebrows, but they have never been known to create violence against the government or it's people. However, there are some dangerous people out there, and i was really proud to be a part of the TIME team that got to work on this project.
