All these photos, and more, can be viewed on my Flicker portfolio.


Iraq Portfolio

Click on the image below to view my top picks from the thousands I took while deployed to the northern Iraq province of Kirkuk from September 2005 to September 2006. They have been published on various news and internet sources, many are published in the book “Screaming Eagles,” by Russ and Susan Bryant and one received honorable mention in the 2006 Keith L. Ware journalism competition for single/standalone picture.

All photos taken with a Nikon D2H.

Gated Community

Click on the image below to view the photos that were featured in the 2009 photojournalism magazine RealEyes, published by the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

Wandering through the dim hallways, up and downs flights of stairs of the single resident occupancy buildings (SRO), I quickly got to know the colorful residents and employees who live and work there. Each person has a unique story to tell and together, they form a larger community, unseen by many living in the Bay area.

With over fifteen SRO hotels in San Francisco, the Tenderloin Housing Clinic provides affordable housing to some of the cities most needy residents. While these SROs are located in aging hotel buildings, in parts of the city marred by high drug use, violence and gang activity, they are home to thousands of people who might otherwise be homeless.

Despite all the negatives, the residents who walk through these iron-gated front doors demonstrate that home is truly the place where you live.

All photos takes with a Canon EOS 50D.
