I graduated from Western Kentucky University with a bachelor’s degree in photojournalism in 2010. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to live and work in several different cities across the United States. I began my career as an intern for reputable publications including The Dallas Morning News, in Dallas Texas, the Star Tribune, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and the Deseret News, in Salt Lake City, Utah. I went on to work as a staff photographer/ videographer for the Gwinnett Daily Post in Lawrenceville, Georgia, during which time I was named the Georgia Press Association Photographer of the Year for 2012.
Currently, I am a visual journalist at the Omaha World-Herald in Omaha, Nebraska. I am responsible for providing photographic coverage of news, sports, feature, entertainment, food and portrait assignments. I also shoot and produce multimedia projects to accompany select stories, and on occasion, self-generated documentary style videos. While working as a visual journalist in Omaha, I have been nominated for five Heartland Emmy awards. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing their stories through compelling photographs and videos.
