I am an independent photographer, who likes sharing stories of the local culture wherever I go ~ whether it is photographing people in their true environment, or documenting a recipe, market to table!
As a lifelong vegetarian who loves to cook, I like to know what goes on my plate and where it comes from, that is what got me recipe developing & blogging. It has also taught me to care more deeply about nature and the environment we live in. I currently live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, but always will be a New Yorker at heart.
In my past life, I ate numbers for breakfast. I am an experienced number cruncher with background in non-profit microfinance, public, and corporate finance. But my dream is to photograph global development issues surrounding Food, Environment, and Social Justice. Someday, I’d love to return to India (where I grew up) and go to Africa (where my mother grew up) to tell some of their stories.
My work has appeared in various national & international publications.
