When I was in the eighth grade I tasked with planning the rest of my life — a reasonable request for a 13 year old. I Googled "Careers in photography" and found photojournalism.

A decade later I've had the pleasure finding my photos pop up in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, The Boston GlobeUSA Today and of course The Oregonian and Roll Call.

I was bit by the political bug during the 2016 election and packed up and moved to Washington. Currently I cover the White House and Capitol Hill for The New York Times.

I'm available for assignment -- just say when and where!
