I’m a visual journalist currently based in Athens, Ohio. In May of 2016, I'll be packing up and leaving Ohio for my next adventure when I graduate from Ohio University with a bachelors in Visual Communication.

I am a firm believer that visuals bring stories to life. They encourage empathy and compel us to make proactive change in the world. I work to create compelling stories through photography and video for this purpose. My work has been published in Bloomberg, Narratively, WOUB Public Media, The Athens Messenger, Soul of Athens, and Ohio University's The Post.

When I’m not behind the camera or obsessively editing behind a computer screen, you can find me rock climbing, hiking, cooking up a new recipe, or painting on my front porch.

I am available for assignments anywhere you would like to send me. Really, anywhere.
