I take photos of those I get to interview as well as people I happen to come across working as a reporter. I started this project when I was a GA reporter for the Midland Reporter-Telegram in Midland, TX. I upload these images to Instagram with short narratives with the hashtag #SnapshotLives. The project allows me to get outside of the constraints of hard news reporting and highlight a more personal, impressionistic side of the story as well as capture important moments that may not make it into the final news edit.

Produced a piece about Bay Area Rapid Transit workers on the graveyard shift for UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism's podcast "Tales of Two Cities." Piece starts at 11:49."On this episode we bring you stories about curious people and the things they do while we’re sleeping. Tune in to hear stories about: a therapist helping people through hypnosis, a new mom staying up with her newborn, the graveyard shift at the BART station and a late-night laundromat that’s never quiet. This episode also features an interview with Dr. Kate Kaplan, a sleep specialist who shares the secrets to a good night’s rest. Thanks for listening."
