A little about me
I'm a recent Oberlin College graduate, having majored in Environmental Studies and Politics, while pursiung my passion for Photography and Cinematography.
I made the website in order to show the best of my photography and cinematography skills. What you see on the site is a small amount of photography and cinematography, and what I believe demonstrates some of my best work.
Currently I am an Arthur Blank Environmental Studies Research Fellow at Oberlin College, working on producing video and photo content to engage the public around environmental sustainability issues. I am also working as a photographer and videographer for Oberlin’s Office of Communications this summer, covering events and providing photos for college publicaitons.
During the summer of 2017, I was an editorial assistant at The World Policy Journal, working in New York City on editing pieces and promoting the summer issue, “Justice Denied.” During the summer of 2016 as well as last winter, I served as an intern at the U.S. EPA Office of Multimedia. In this role, I was able to draw attention to important environmental issues, such as the Toxics Release Inventory, by researching, photographing and filming content that provided essential and accessible information to the public. Assisting the EPA’s producers allowed me to combine my interest in environmental issues with my photography and videography skills. I also gained firsthand experience taking an idea from the storyboard to a final product for public release.
At Oberlin I was the Photo Editor of the Oberlin Review where I oversaw the translation of complex story ideas pitched from staff and section heads, into photo assignments, which I then delegated to our staff of photographers. Throughout my senior year, I was a photographer for the Oberlin College Communications Department, taking photos on assignment as well as doing studio portrait work. In addition, I filmed, edited and produced video content for Oberlin College’s Office of Environmental Sustainability. These work experiences have exposed me to fast-paced working environments and allowed me to broaden my communication, time management, leadership, and writing skills.
