Editorial Feature | Visitor Guide - Visit Tri-Valley

A few months back I was commissioned by Diablo Custom Publishing to create images for an annual publication, the Visitor Guide for Visit Tri-Valley. Having lived in the Tri-Valley for my first three years in the Bay Area, I enjoyed the opportunity to return and get to know local brewers, winemakers, and the talented team behind Visit Tri-Valley. I’ve shared a few tearsheets and outtakes below but encourage you to check out the entire guide for more inspiration!

Editorial Feature | Compass Magazine

The Summer 2018 issue of Compass Magazine, created by Diablo Custom Publications for the Regional Parks Foundation, gave me the opportunity to connect with the Katayanagi family. This adorable foursome caught the attention of the Regional Parks Foundation after completing the annual Trails Challenge together. Get to know their story in the latest issue and follow their example in taking advantage of your local parks!

Editorial Feature | Saint Mary's Magazine

I recently had the privilege of meeting and photographing Sean Valentine, Operations Director at the Hidden Genius Project, for Saint Mary's Magazine. The Hidden Genius Project is an Oakland non-profit providing mentorship to young black men to prepare them for careers in the tech industry. I loved having the chance to see this organization in action!
