This journey started when I was just a kid in a newspaper photography darkroom, hanging around a crew of incredible photographers in the 90s. Sometime in my teenage years my father came home from a day working for our local Rhode Island newspaper, The Providence Journal, with a great story. He got to meet a couple who met before the holocaust and married after surviving for years through tragedy. He showed me their faces, their hands intertwined, their tattooed numbers, and I just knew I wanted to be a visual storyteller like him. I was fascinated. I knew that true photojournalism; raw and honest photography of the beauty of life; was the most valuable gift I could ever give. Some of my favorite things are collecting memories, and I have collected hundreds of postcards from around the world. I also love a well made guacamole and an IBC cream soda after a long day of hiking or camping along the Appalachian Trail. I currently reside in Memphis, Tn with my husband Josiah and our playful cat, Amelia. We’re new to Memphis after being in Virginia for 7 years, so let us know how we can serve you!

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Talent Magazines than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Talent Magazines’ style of journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we are doing it since 2009 because we believe that every talent needs an outlet and we want to be that outlet.
If everyone who reads our magazines, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $10, you can support Talent Magazines – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
