Good day and welcome to my website!
I am a multimedia journalist striving to tell pure and impactful stories that make a difference. I'm an avid advocate that everyone has a story and I've made it my career goal to tell these tales with a level of dimensionality that is often lost. I believe the best way to do so is with an arsenal of multi-faceted skills and well-rounded understanding of the world, including knowledge about everything from social justice issues to business to politics.
I'm currently a junior photojournalism convergence student at the University of Missouri-Columbia. This semester I'm interning with the Columbia Daily Tribune's photojournalism department, as well as reporting on the Missouri legislative session for the Missourian. I've also been practicing my drone skills and knowledge in preparation for my license test as the cherry on top. Last semester I juggled my time creating news feature videos for Vox Magazine, serving as an assistant producer for the Global Journalist, interning as a visual content producer for ZOUNation Magazine and writing narratives of personal struggle on my blog.
Over the past few years, I've built up my multimedia experience by interning at the NPR affiliate in Kansas City, crafting multi platform packages as a convergence news reporter, shooting D1 sports as Power Mizzou's lead photographer, writing features on prominent local figures for LO Profile Magazine and covering sports and campus events for the Maneater. To read more about this experience, please read my resume.
