Knoxville, TN, United States
I was born and raised in Joliet, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, but really identify with natural beauty of southern Illinois. I did not start shooting as a photojournalist until 2011, but since discovering my passion for documenting life I have tried to use it as a tool to understand people. Continuing to gain and share that understanding is important to me, and something I always hope to do.
I am currently serving my fourth internship at the Knoxville News Sentinel in Knoxville Tennessee. My other internships include; the Patriot News, Harrisburg, Penn.; the Chicago Tribune, Chicago, Ill.; the Evansville Courier and Press, Evansville, Ind.
Although my background is photojournalism I am open to any assignments.
