Howdy! I am a fourth-year photojournalism student at the Missouri School of Journalism. Currently, I am Photo Director at Vox Magazine and a Photography Intern for Mizzou Athletics, as well as a Team Photographer for Mizzou Ice Hockey. Previously, I was Staff Photographer and Videographer and Photo Editor at the Columbia Missourian and a Staff Photographer at the Jefferson City News Tribune. I was also President of Kappa Alpha Mu, Mizzou’s photojournalism society. My other work has been featured in RunnerSpace, DyeStat and NPPA's News Photographer Magazine.

My favorite things to cover are cross country and track and field. Nothing beats photographing a meet or spending time behind the scenes with athletes!

I also enjoy getting to know the parts of my community I might not otherwise interact with. I enjoy local assignments that allow me to spend extended periods of time with community members so I can tell their stories as thoroughly as possible. I am passionate about the environment, and always seek opportunities to get into the field and learn about different issues.

When I'm not photographing, I enjoy running, hiking, rock climbing, playing guitar, and searching for the best London Fog in town.
