Hello! I am currently studying at Michigan State University for two B.As in journalism and creative advertising. I am set to graduate in fall 2022.

I am currently based in Michigan as a photojournalism intern for the Detroit Free Press

My primary experience has been as a photographer and photo editor at the award winning student newspaper The State News. During my time as a journalist, I have worked to understand the members of each community I have the privilege to cover. 

I am looking to collaborate with others to help tell their stories and make change via photography and making connections.

Thank you for your time.
