I am a photojournalist and writer based in Athens, Ohio, with a passion for shining a light on real life through honest, creative, and thought-provoking photographs and words. I study visual communication and journalism at Ohio University.

Currently, I am a photographer for Ohio University's Communication and Marketing team. In the spring of 2021, I worked as a photojournalist intern with the Cincinnati Enquirer, then in July I traveled to Kenya with a non-profit called the Greater Project to document their mission through photography and video. In my free time, I find joy when spending time with loved ones, exploring nature and finding new music. Here's an on-going highlight of people that inspire me.
