All my life I have been moved by the stories of people I have never met in places I have never been, thanks to dedicated storytellers around the world. Once I got ahold of a camera, I realized I had a medium to serve people as a storyteller myself.

I am a senior majoring in Journalism and Global Studies and minoring in Japanese at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My goal as a visual storyteller is to use communicative and innovative media to reach people. ​ ​ ​

Currently, I am interning at MLive/The Grand Rapids Press where I produce photo and video story packages for online and print publication.
