Before finishing her Biology degree from the University of Arizona in 2000, Lindy took a few black and white photography classes. One of her first assignments was to document a family, so she chose a family of Harley-Davidson riders in Tucson. She started to pursue documentary and street photography from there.
While studying at the International Center of Photography she photographed theatrical portraits of performers as well as landscapes typical of vintage America, like diners and motels. Afterwards she relocated to Latin America for three years to travel up it's backbone, getting to know other cultures while sharing peoples stories in the spirit of documentary photography.
She worked in Chile for a year and a half at an orphanage for girls through VE Global. With the help of PENTAX, she co-founded OJOS nuevos
, a digital photography workshop for at-risk youth that let kids photograph themselves and their communities. She then worked in Costa Rica as a Staff Photographer for The Tico Times, Central America's leading English newspaper. When she returned back to her hometown of Phoenix, AZ, she joined Tumbleweed's Casa de Sueños Program, providing support at transitional homes for unaccompanied refugee minors who sought reunification with their families in the U.S.
In connection to her passion for social outreach and storytelling, she co-founded and photographs for Humans of St. Louis
. She recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a Masters of Social Work and Public Health in order to further employ her photography to promote cross-cultural understanding, health, and wellness.
Lindy's work has been published in St. Louis Magazine
, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

, The Village Voice, Transitions Abroad Magazine, and Fodor's Travel Guides. Her work has been exhibited at the Tucson Museum of Art, the New York Children's Museum of Art, Cafe Literario, HOLGAS Gallery, and ICP.
