Her work has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Time, Art in America, Artforum, Exit Magazine, Art News, Modern Painters, Oprah Magazine, Elle Magazine, The LA Times, Blink and Art Ltd. – which profiled her as one of 15 emerging West Coast artists under the age of 35.She received her B.F.A. from the University of Montana in 2002, and her M.F.A. from Portland State University in 2004

His heart-wrenching editorial photograph of the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center appeared on the cover of Time magazine and was called one of the 40 most important magazine covers in the last 40 years by the American Society of Magazine Editors. His work has been featured in Communication Arts magazine, The New York Times, The Village Voice, New York magazine, BlackBook and on NPR. His journals have been included alongside those of director Mike Figgis and musician David Byrne in the 2005 Princeton Architectural Press book Drawing From Life.
