Los Angeles, CA, United States
I am a Wisconsin native who moved to Los Angeles in 2007. I have enjoyed living in Southern California every moment except when on the 405 freeway. LA is a place of great adventure and wonderful experiences.
In August 2011, I made a life-changing decision to leave my 9 to 5 job and become a photojournalist. Everyday since, I have challenged myself as a photographer -- taking every opportunity that was offered to me to hone my craft. After returning to Santa Monica College as a full-time photography student, I joined the student newspaper, The Corsair. Spending long nights editing and assisting with layout to learning the ways of a weekly paper prepared me for an internship with the Los Angeles Clippers during the 2011-12 season. There, I happily took a space on the court for every home game to provide photographs for the franchise. Other opportunities have taken me to work in the photography department of the second largest public transportation agency in the U.S. and assisting Barbara Grover's with her project "New Face of Hunger" Project commissioned by Mazon.
San Francisco based photographer Elizabeth Moran writes, “I've always been interested in things I'm not a part of.” Photography is the key that opens doors, allowing me to experience and learn new things. My tireless curiosity drives me to meet people and to hear their stories.
Currently, I work as a photo editor for NFL.com selecting, editing and preparing photos for online content for the site. In addition, produce visual content for NFL social media accounts. During the past two years while covering the NFL Combine I created and produced the Faces-of-the-40, a collage of humorous faces NFL prospects make while running the 40-yard dash. For both years, my images on Twitter have made the trending list in the United States and earned high engagement rates on NFL’s social media platforms.
