Based in Washington, D.C., I am a contract photographer with The Associated Press and Reuters. I previously worked as a staff photographer at St. Joseph News-Press, a daily newspaper in northwest Missouri. I am accredited to the U.S. Senate Press Photographers’ Gallery, and I am a professional member of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA). My work has been recognized in NPPA's Best of Photojournalism and Northern Short Course contests and the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar Contest.
I studied photojournalism and received an M.A. degree from the Missouri School of Journalism on a Fulbright scholarship. I earned a bachelor's degree in international relations, with high honors, from Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey.
