“We are humans. We are humanity. We are Humanity for Change.”
Meet the Team
HFC is not operated from a desk but instead by dedicated people who put themselves in stricken and sometimes desperate parts of the world where solutions are not often provided nor opportunity not easily found. Meet the team behind the words and the images.
Originally from Oregon, a childhood connection with nature would galvanize a love affair with the outdoors, travel and faraway places. With a camera in-hand and many years logged, faraway desperate places would provide a global education in social injustice and produce a sustained and enduring extended empathy. Though, the impetus for HFC would come from growing up in relative poverty and seeing first hand how opportunity can change the course of one's life.
