Pete Buttigieg campaigning in New Hampshire for New York magazine


A big thanks to Marvin for calling me at the last minute to cover one of Democratic presidential candidate and South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg's recent campaign swing through New Hampshire for New York magazine. It was a quick shoot, with no special access, but it was a joy to get assigned to just do my thing while covering the candidate's ascendance to the top of the 2020 Democratic primary field. My pictures accompany Olivia Nuzzi's excellent profile of Buttigieg. The piece ended up as the cover story for the April 14-28, 2019, issue of New York.

Thanks again to Marvin, Jody, Olivia, and the rest of the talented team at New York magazine.

Fidelity Execs for Bloomberg Markets Cover Story


I photographed Fidelity Investments CEO Abby Johnson and President of Fidelity Personal Investing Kathy Murphy for the cover of Bloomberg Markets magazine and the accompanying feature. What you may notice is that the image on the cover isn't actually a photo, but instead a painted version of my photo, as is the style for the magazine. The illustration was done by Caroline Pool.

A big thanks to Donna Cohen at Bloomberg for the challenging assignment, to Peter Gumaskas and CJ Gunther for assisting, and to Rose Fortuna for makeup.

You can see the original photo below, as well as images from inside the magazine. The article is available to read online, as well: The Most Powerful Woman in Investing Gives a Rare Interview

Dr. Michael Holick for Pro Publica


For ProPublica, I photographed Dr. Michael Holick, a professor and researcher at Boston University, as he examined a woman accused of child abuse and in his cluttered office and lab.

A big thank you to Jillian at ProPublica for calling me for the assignment. I've always admired ProPublica's work from afar, and it was such a pleasure to get the chance to work with the organization.

The article on Holick's work is well worth a read: The Child Abuse Contrarian. The piece was also published by the New Yorker.

You can see more of my photos of Holick in the Recent Work section of this website.

Tearsheet: Jean-Francois Bonnefon for Le Monde


I photographed French economist Jean-Francois Bonnefon for an interview about his research aggregating human responses to moral decisions that might be faced by self-driving cars and other machines with the "Moral Machine" website. His research was published in Nature, and he was photographed in the Scalable Cooperation space at MIT's Media Lab.

Thanks to Laurence, Charlotte, Lucy, and the rest at Le Monde!

Tearsheet: Ted Cruz buttons in Harper’s


I don't normally share small uses of my photos, but I'm too excited to have an image in Harper's not to. This image from a Cruz rally in New Hampshire accompanies Ana Marie Cox's profile of Texas senator Ted Cruz in the Nov. 2018 issue of Harper's.

Thanks to Alyssa for her persistence in finding a place for my photos in the magazine!

Tearsheet: Toyota Connected driverless technology for Bloomberg Businessweek


I spent a couple days in Plano, Texas, and Cambridge, Massachusetts, for a feature on Toyota's driverless vehicle initiative and the Toyota Connected skunkworks for Bloomberg Businessweek. Only two pictures made it into the magazine (see the opening spread above), but quite a few were included in the online presentation of the article.

Big thanks to Jane at Bloomberg Businessweek for the assignment!
