My year in Ukraine

To many Canadians, Ukraine is a mysterious country. Maybe they think not much has changed since the Soviet Union. Or maybe they think everyone walks around in traditional costumes all the time. Whatever the case, I want people to get a glimpse into what Ukraine is really like, which may not be as they expected. On my blog, I try to capture the Ukrainian life while I'm at celebrations, while I'm on excursions, and while I explore cities with my friends.

Shoal Lake 40 First Nation

I went to Shoal Lake 40 First Nation Nov. 12, 2016 with The Ark Project and Earthdog Terrier Rescue of Manitoba. The two organizations went to Shoal Lake 40 to provide animal aid. I created a photo essay for a photojournalism class. See the full photo essay here.


I use Instagram as a storytelling tool. I’m interested in street photography, and more importantly, the people I meet. I also use Instagram to complement written stories.
