I became interested in journalism during my first year as a student at West Virginia University. However, I never thought about journalism as a career until I returned years later after living outside the United States.
While living in South Africa, I began to study social documentary photography. Soon, I found myself combining my photographic and journalistic interests in the world of visual communication.
When I finish my undergraduate study, I hope to enter the field of photojournalism, while also working on various documentary-style projects.
