I’m a photographer, journalist and all-around creative, back in the Peoria, Illinois area where I grew up, currently at 25 News and Heart of Illinois ABC as a Web Producer.

I enjoy meeting the people around me and telling their story through photography. As a student in the journalism program at Eastern Illinois University I learned more about the art of visual storytelling. I was able to put those skills into practice at the yearbook and the daily newspaper where I’ve won awards in categories including photography, writing and page design. It was through my education where I first photographed breaking news, sports, studio and portrait photography.

I love to travel and have been blessed with the opportunity to have visited some amazing places. Having a mixed background, I’ve always enjoyed traveling to Taiwan and other countries in Asia, as well as around the world.

Let’s swap stories.
