I'm a writer, photographer and media strategist who lives and works in Washington, D.C.
I blog about street photography at Cosmic Smudge and on the Huffington Post.
You can also see my work at Joe Newman Photography and on 500px.
I also edit and run a blog about Washington, DC photography at DC Focused.
