I’m ecstatic to receive funding from the Frison Institute as well as the Center for Global Studies at the University of Wyoming. This research funding will support my travel to site visits, in collecting oral histories and photographing folks throughout Belize engaged in interdisciplinary practices that, together, comprise the country’s environmental conservation and stewardship of heritage, cultural and archaeological sites.
My collaborative work with Arianna King in Cape Coast, Ghana was published in Urban Matters Journal. You can see the photo essay and incredible accompanying text here.

We will be moving to the Southeast Wyoming town of Laramie this summer. I have been accepted to earn a Master of Arts in Anthropology and Environmental and Natural Sciences with a focus on community archeology while also earning a graduate certificate in GIS. I am thrilled to explore the intersection of science, visual anthropology, art making, photography, mapmaking, and collaborative archeology in the Rocky Mountain West.
I have been working and organizing with Pennsylvania’s Anthracite Heritage Museum on a community-rooted project uplifting and celebrating folks from the community. This work includes interviews with and story collection from folks who comprise the dynamic fabric of an ever evolving coal region.
I had the pleasure of photographing the late great 5th Ward Weebie in 2010 for the living bounce and hip hop archive Where They At, his portrait is now part of LSM’s permanent collection. Thank you Weebie.
