My first photographs were fuzzy disposable frames of random leaves and my headless parents, taken as I angled up from my five-year-old height. Since then, I have never been far from a camera or journal. Thankfully, the quality of my work has grown with me, and I can confidently say all heads will make it in the frame now.
I've had the incredible honor to interview, photograph and write the powerful stories of countless individuals. The privilege of being on the front lines of history is never lost on me, and my work focuses on three tenets above all else: honoring the humans in the stories I produce, amplifying underrepresented voices and personifying complex social issues.
I chose to study both sociology and journalism, with an emphasis in photojournalism, to engage with storytelling in a responsible, holistic manner that remains informed of the world into which stories enter and transform.
I could chat about journalism and communications for hours, so please reach out to further geek out with me.
