I am currently a Master of Arts candidate at Queen’s University Belfast studying Conflict Transformation and Social Justice. I am a graduate of Ohio University with majors in Visual Communication, (concentration in Photojournalism), Spanish Language, and Anthropology.
Since graduation I've hauled my life back to my home state of Michigan, spent time all over the United States working with an International Education company, made the leap to settle down in Ollantaytambo, Peru for the past two years, and just recently moved to Belfast, Northern Ireland for my studies.
I consider myself a photographer, journalist, photojournalist, visual communicator, visual anthropologist, anthropologist, visual storyteller, as well as a human rights activist, and sometimes I try to speak Spanish while doing it all. I am eager to gain skillsets as a researcher and ethnographer.
I am a firm believer that this world is meant to be explored, adventures are meant to be had, and everyone's story is meant to be told. Through visual storytelling, opportunities for global change appear as we are given the chance to explore the world through someone else's perspective. Exposure to as many perspectives as possible has the potential to lead to greater peace and justice throughout the world.
I'm always in search of my next adventure!
