I’m a photojournalist from Cincinnati, Ohio, double majoring in visual communication and anthropology at Ohio University. I love working on projects and photo stories where I can blend my interests in photojournalism and anthropology; learning about ethnographic methods and photography simultaneously has informed my perspective as a photojournalist.

This summer, I lived in Havana, Cuba, for a month while I completed research for my visual anthropology thesis about art and censorship. I also interned as a photojournalist for the Pulitzer Prize-winning Cincinnati Enquirer.

This school year, I'm thrilled to serve as the president of the OU chapter of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPAOU), which means that I have had the pleasure of serving on both the first and second all-female boards on campus. As the president, I plan weekly events for photojournalism students to help build our community within the school of visual communication. I put together our school's first POY contest (OU-POY) judged by The Columbus Dispatch. I created a gallery display showcasing the work of the gold and silver winners. I also bring in acclaimed photojournalism speakers, run our mentorship program and help students prepare for internships.

My work has been recognized by Photo District News (PDN), The National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) and the Ohio News Photographers Association (ONPA), among others.

Please don't hesitate to drop me a line for an assignment, portrait session, or just to get coffee :)
