My love of meeting new people has fueled my interest in photojournalism. I try to use humor and friendship to connect with people. Experience has taught me to be a journalist for others, not myself. I strive to listen first, then translate stories into images.
I will graduate from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln in May 2018, earning a bachelor's degree in journalism with an emphasis on English and history. I was the photo intern at the Washington Post for the summer of 2017 and will return again in 2018. Currently, I am working for the Palm Peach Post in Florida.
In my spare time, I enjoy butchering the lyrics to your father's favorite 70s hit on karaoke night.
