So here’s a little update on a few things from the past few months.

I apologize in advance for the lack of photos and the abundance of self-promotion in this post which feels rather painful. But I must say I have worked so hard on these projects and they are near and dear to me so I am happy the stories are being published and receiving some added profile.

I am nominated to enter the UNICEF Photo of the Year competition with the winner announced later this year.

I am pretty stoked to have my Marlboro Boys project published on TimeLightBox.

I was also named one of the winners of LensCulture’s Emerging Talent Award.

And lastly, my photo essay “Our Home and Native Land” about a Canadian First Nations reserve was recognized by Canada’s National Pictures of the Year in the following categories: the story contributed to my nomination for Photojournalist of the Year, I was named Picture Story first place winner and second place in Social Issues winner.

Again, I apologize for the lack of pictures. I am backlogged on photos I want to share from Missouri when I went on a whim a few weeks ago and photos from my project I recently completed in Guatemala.

Pictures will come! I promise.
