I am a true student. I want to pick up as much knowledge about my passions as possible.
As of Feb. 2013, I am the new sports photographer and co-photo editor at Tan & Cardinal Newspaper, the student run newspaper at Otterbein University.
Design is a skill that I am very passionate about. I learned InDesign and Photoshop as a sophomore in high school, but for the most part, I’m self-taught. Also, during the past year, I have taught myself how to use Illustrator. In the fall of my junior year at Otterbein University, I took my first design course and have fallen in love with the field. This is truly where my heart lies. Currently, I am looking for an internship where I can continue to develop these skills and grow even more as a designer.

I am a self-taught photographer. I challenge myself to evoke some kind of emotion or thought with each picture or to depict the model’s persona. I have been using my Nikon D60 since October of 2011. I am fluent in Adobe Photoshop and love editing photos in RAW. I have a Flickr account that is updated often and have a WordPress account dedicated to client-related photography. Currently, I am a paid member of Otterbein’s school newspaper, the Tan & Cardinal, as the sports photographer.

I have been on the Tan & Cardinal staff since my freshman year at Otterbein. I have written for news, A&E and some blogs for otterbein360.com. At the end of my sophomore year, I was named a T&C/otterbein360.com MVP at the annual Communication Dept. Awards banquet. During my sophomore year, I was enrolled in a feature writing course, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
