Bachelor of Arts in Visual Journalism and Culture at the University of Connecticut

Photo, Video, Editing & Design

I am a 2023 Graduate from the University of Connecticut, with an individualized major focusing in Visual Journalism, Anthropology, and Communications. I have been taking pictures for newspapers since my sophomore year of high school, starting with The Harvard Press in Harvard, MA and moved to The Daily Campus while I attended UConn. I have worked as both a staff photographer and photo producer at The Daily Campus, covering high profile division one sporting events such as The Women's NCAA Basketball Tournament (2023) and The Myrtle Beach Bowl Game (2022). I am also grateful to have studied abroad in Firenze, Italia during the Spring 2022 semester, where I was able to take a Visual Art course and develop my personal style of photography.
