I'm an American from Grand Haven, Michigan. I currently live in Mie, Japan where I continue to pursue my work photographing the elderly female divers of Asia. I've worked for various newspapers and magazines in America, Korea and Japan and published my first book of photography in 2010, entitled The Village across the Sea. I have twice been published on the National Geographic website, once in 2011 for my photo Haenyeo with Octopus and again for Portrait of an Ama in 2013.
