I am a photographer, communications nerd, and writer working in Washington D.C. I believe that visual narratives as well as written documentation are integral components to expose the existence, experiences, and actions of people.
At Wake Forest University, I graduated Cum Laude with a double major in Sociology and Studio Art in 2017. Throughout the latter half of college, I had the honor to photograph for Wake Forest University, under the mentorship of University Photographer, Ken Bennett -- former contributor to the Washington Post, The New York Times and the Associated Press.
I've produced a photography exhibit, exposing printing processing, featured at Hanes Gallery, and Winston-Salem's 2017 Juneteenth festival, consisting of assertively large-scaled prints responding to the implicit racial bias manifested in the technological development of Kodak's color film and Shirley Cards.
Part of the inaugural class of Elle.com Scholars, a selective cohort of young journalists reporting on race, class, and gender, I also worked under the mentorship of Sister Citizen's author, and Wake Forest University Professor, Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry, and current American University Professor Dr. Sherri Williams. I wrote about how women of color are redefining and shifting the role of comedy at Elle.com. I pitched and did the final design for the Solange-inspired Seat at the Table Syllabus.
In my free time, I write headlines and report original stories for AsAmNews.com.
