What an honor it was when someone from the Ohio University communications department called and asked to interview me about a few images they curated from my website! Their Visual Communications program is well known in the country, and I highly respect their educational offerings in this field of study.
When I attended Ohio University, I wanted to be a Photojournalism major but my father did not permit it for various reasons. Having them initiate this discussion and sanction my work is a long held wish come true.

I was interviewed for a story about obtaining fixers in foreign lands in Pop Photo.
The imagery and sound I collected while in Ethiopia last November has been edited into a video and included in Mercy Corps’ new “A Girl Can” campaign. It is an honor to be involved in this effort to assist girls’ education in rural Ethiopia.

A few of my images were included in the 591 Photography Blog in celebration of International Women’s Day!
We just completed a video interview with Dr. Catherine Hamlin from the content I captured last October at the Hamlin Fistula Hospital. This video is being used by Hamlin Fistula USA as well as in Ethiopia.
I was interviewed for this ASMP Bulletin about the difficulties in securing permissions to use music for multi-media presentations. Thank you, David Schommer, for granting permission to use one of your groovy songs from Bole 2 Harlem for my Ethiopia: Feel The Love video. Bole 2 Harlem was playing everywhere I went in Addis last month!

My work documenting emergency obstetrics in rural Ethiopia was chosen to be in the American Society of Media Photographers “Best of 2011” project list. I am hoping that this will bring about increased understanding of the difficulties surrounding maternal health that are present in rural settings. The Ethiopian government is actively developing solutions to address these problems as quickly as they can, with minimal resources.
Here is an interview that details this project and others that I am working on, plus some of my philosophies and business practices.
