Howdy! As an aspiring journalist, I have found several opportunities to become the growing photographer and writer that I am today, including school sports/activities, collegiate basketball games, and portraiture. I've grown up in Dallas, TX for the entirety of my life but I am eager to begin the next chapter of my life at college. I hope to pursue sports journalism as a career, whether for a collegiate sports team or even ESPN. I am currently a senior in high school and have taken several photography classes, including an independent study in photojournalism, where I was able to put this site together.
Through my independent study class, I am being mentored by Marcia Allert, the Director of Visual Journalism at the Dallas Morning News, who had a huge contribution toward the editing process of my photos. I was also selected to shoot the Conference-USA basketball tournament for Western Kentucky University before it was canceled due to COVID-19. For the 2020-21 school year, I am a Co-Editor-In-Chief for my school's yearbook staff with hopes of making this the best book with the best community, as that is a huge passion of mine.
Ever since I received my first camera at age 13, I've been inspired to capture tender moments of peoples' lives, whether it's a simple portrait, cap and gown pics, or a sports game. I hope to pursue sports journalism as a career, whether for a collegiate sports team or even ESPN. I hope to be able to work with you soon!
