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, and recently made the leap to settle down in Ollantaytambo, Peru. I currently work as the Marketing and Communications Coordinator at Awamaki, a non-profit focused on sustainable development and women's empowerment in rural Peru.
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 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! My future dreams include pursuing a Master's degree, and working in the fields of conflict transformation and social justice.
