I am a photographer and photo editor based in Syracuse, New York. I recently graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications with a master's degree in photojournalism. In December 2019, I graduated from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa, as a double major in digital media and psychology.
Growing up on a farm in Schaller, Iowa, has led me to be interested in producing work about agriculture and telling stories related to farming. Additionally, I have an interest in producing stories about women and femininity.
I have experience in reporting, audio storytelling, photographic storytelling and some video storytelling; and am proficient with DSLR and mirrorless camera systems, Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, Audition, Photo Mechanic, and Premiere Pro.
While at Newhouse, I have worked on various projects in the Syracuse community and learned about different lighting techniques in the studio and on location, and assisted in directing a short film. In addition, I have shot events for news publications. When I wasn't working on my own stories, I was working as an instructional associate assisting students in their photographic work.
I am available for work in Central New York and occasionally, in Northwest, Iowa.
