CRS - National Gathering 2023
I'm currently the head of photography for Catholic Relief Services, an international relief agency. Most of my time at CRS is spent strategizing the best way to visually show our donors what their contributions are doing for those who are less fortunate overseas.
In the past few years we've developed CRS Chapters, or groups from different states who are committed to our cause and willing to advocate it.
Below are a few selects I shot from our first ever National Gathering for the chapters. The week long workshop culminated with chapter members meeting with their congressmen on Capital Hill to advocate for continued funding for our relief efforts.
CASA - Welcome Back Congress
Outside of my day gig, my favorite freelance work comes from working with other organizations who help people, agencies like CASA, an organization that assists immigrant families across the country.
Below are some selects from a march that occurred on the day congress was back in session. At the end of the march, Senator Chuck Schumer spoke in solidarity with CASA's mission.
LIRS - Ribbon Cutting, Welcome Center
Much like CASA, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, offers supports for immigrant families, refugees and asylum seekers.
The following images were at a ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of a new welcome center for their program participants.
LIRS - RIS Conference
The following photos were from a Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services conference that focused solely on the challenges of resettlement.
Barclay Hopkins STEM Partnership
For the past ten years I've had the good fortune to cover STEM outreach events between the Barclay Elementary/Middle School, a Baltimore City Public School, and the Johns Hopkins University’s Whiting School of Engineering.
The following photos are from this years showcase, at the Barclay School itself.
LIRS - Hope For The Holidays
The following photos are from a Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services gift packing event. Volunteers wrote cards and wrapped gifts that were then delivered to immigration centers around the US.
