Originally from Los Angeles, CA, now based in Columbia, MO

I am a visual journalist currently attending the University of Missouri for my Master’s in Visual Journalism & Leadership after receiving my Bachelor of Journalism from the same university. After working at the Columbia Missourian, I have learned how to navigate through a newsroom and how to work closely with fellow photo editors, beat editors and designers. My curiosity in editing has transformed into an admiration for it, and I hope to continue my journey as a photojournalist while incorporating my passion for visual editing and design.

This summer I will be in Washington D.C. interning at The Washington Post as a photo editor.
