Freelance Photo-editing and Photography Work:

Viator: I worked as a freelance photo-editor for the San Francisco office of the international travel company. I navigated micro-stock photography websites and user uploaded content to help with a website relaunch.

The New York Times: I've freelanced in Maine for NYT covering events for the business, travel, and lifestyle sections of the paper. I have had multiple photographs in front-page stories for the print edition of the paper.

Culture Unplugged: Contributor to the studio and online venue that produces films and written work with the “aspiration     to integrate disparate parts of the self and the global human society.” Based out of Mumbai, India with a media presence in the USA, Indonesia, and New Zealand.
