I remember staring at the image on my computer screen. I haven't been able to get it out of my head. Ferguson police were in a line, side by side, in full riot gear. They had their shields up, batons ready, a gun in the holster and some had rifles, ready to go. They were face to face with unarmed Ferguson protesters, some who had their hands up, some who were locked arms with the person beside them. I cried, feeling anguish, anxiousness and anger. That image moved me through several emotions, then it moved me in to action. 

I still remember the moment he told part of his story. The image I see of him, the look on his face, his eyes watering up as he told us he had been sentenced to life in prison for a crime he didn't commit. He was grateful that a lawyer fought on his behalf to get him free after serving 20 years. That image stays with me to this day.

Photos tell stories. They have the ability to make us laugh and cry. They give us the ability to recall our own memories and to connect with the powerful stories of others. They have the ability to move us in to action.

It's my passion to help tell the stories of the oppressed and marginalized, through photography. Far too many times, the voices of black and brown folks, GLBTQ+, poor, immigrants, women, homeless folks and many more become the voices that are silenced.

Over the last four years, I've had the opportunity to work with many great folks and grassroot organizations, documenting several events, protests, conversations and moments that help bring attention to social justice issues and help tell the stories of the marginalized who get swept up in the inequity of our systems, racism and discrimination daily.

I invite you to join me in this journey of storytelling. From the depths of Ferguson, to the borders and everywhere in between, together, we can help tell the stories that will spark hope, stimulate conversation and provoke change. 

Let's collaborate together. 

Donations go to travel expenses, along with other related expenses that help tell the stories through grassroots efforts, organizations, individuals and movements that support equality, freedom and human dignity. 

Thanks for being here. 

In power and peace,
