Portfolios: Travel / Volunteer

Most of these images are from my travels while volunteering for different NGOs over the years. This has ranged from teaching children photography in after school classes in the slums of Rio De Janeiro, to documenting an NGO that teaches people in small villages on the Amazon River how to raise special indigenous bees, to shooting personal work for a gallery show benifiting underprivlaged teens. These experiences have made me the person and the photographer that I am.
