I was born and raised in North Jersey and currently attend UNC-Chapel Hill majoring in photojournalism. My journey with photography began when my father, Russ, first handed me a camera when I was 12 years old
In November 2014, photography took on a new meaning for me when my father passed away from cancer. It became my escape and my therapy. At the same time, through orally telling my father's story, I saw the power of storytelling and the difference it can make in so many lives.
Since arriving in Chapel Hill, I have worked as an intern, staffer, freelancer and photo editor for many organizations including The Minneapolis Star Tribune, The Charlotte Observer, The Daily Tar Heel, UNC Athletic Communications, and the UNC General Alumni Association.
I continue to aspire to help tell the stories of those without the means to tell it themselves and hope to bring about positive change through that mission.
