Of all the assignments I receive from Diablo Magazine40 Under 40 may be my personal favorite. Not only am I given the opportunity to connect with some of the East Bay's most influential individuals under 40, but I get to hone in on my environmental portraiture skills. 

Take a look at the portraits of Haley Alvarez, Chris Giles, Catherine Aker, Louisa Pickworth, Leily Kiani, and Alicia Williams featured in the September issue!

The May issue of Diablo Magazine introduced me to Courtney E. Martin, an Oakland-based author and social and political activist. To accompany the article that highlights the future of feminism, I photographed Courtney with her youngest daughter in the shared outdoor space of her cohousing community. Inspired by the many influential women in the East Bay!
