I am an independent photographer mostly shooting editorial work. I like 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! My dream is to photograph more of what matters to me on a macro level ~ global development issues surrounding Food, Education & Social Justice. 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.

I am also a lifelong vegetarian who loves to cook, more because I like to know what goes on my plate and where it comes from, that is what got me blogging. In my past life, I was a number cruncher with experience in non-profit microfinance, public, and corporate finance. I currently live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, but the best lessons I learnt in life came from living in New York, so no matter where I go, I am always a New Yorker  >>

My work has appeared in various publications. I am available to travel on assignment, if you are interested in hiring me or licensing my photographs, email me!
