I met and photographed Wren Vetens at her home in Madison, Wisconsin for a collaborative project called Bill of the Month between Kaiser Health News and NPR. Vetens was struggling with payment and insurance surprises regarding her confirmation surgery and the article discusses the ups and downs of her process. You can read about her experience in multiple places:
Team 19, an organization that uses advocacy, activism, and volunteering to fight against racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia and fascism, hired me to photograph their event at the Old Sugar Distillery in Madison, Wisconsin.

As many as 100,000 people participated in the Women’s March down State Street to the Wisconsin State Capitol on January 21, 2017. I was there for Madison’s local alternative weekly, Isthmus.
Jessica Giesen of Giesen Law Offices asked for portraits that were less traditional and more personable than typical headshots are for lawyers. She wanted something a little more unique.

Sandra Adell, 70, a literature professor in the Department of Afro-American Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, spoke with The New York Times about her gambling addiction late in life. Adell, originally from Detroit, chronicled the struggles she encountered and survived coming of age in Michigan, the move to Madison, WI and the addiction that she never expected to have in her book “Confessions of a Slot Machine Queen.”
I photographed her in her office at the University.
