It has been a while since I've updated my website, but here is a recap on the last few years :
I am now 20 years old. I'm a junior at Texas Christian University (TCU). I was recruited when I was 16 to be on their Division 1 Equestrian team and have been competing with them for almost three years now. I was an All-American my freshman year and due to remaining NCAA eligibility from the pandemic, I have the opportunity to stay a 5th year to compete at TCU. I am majoring in English and minoring in Creative Writing, also taking classes in Communications and Astrophysics/Astronomy. For my 5th year I will be applying for the Accelerated Master's Degree in English. Through this, I hope to attain the tools I need to become a successful photojournalist and writer out of school.
School has kept me busy these last couple years and because of this I have had to put my love for photography on hold. I have spent my college summers backpacking, working and traveling. This past summer I finished up my advanced scuba certifications, specializing in drift diving, night diving, fish identification and advanced free diving. Now I have the qualifications to photograph underwater :)
With all of my undergraduate courses completed, and my Master's application coming soon, I am focusing primarily on applying writing skills to my photography. This summer (2023) I will be traveling to Zambia to learn and work for a conservation group, and Svalbard, Norway, where I hope to learn and capture how our actions as a species are affecting arctic wildlife.
When I'm not in Texas at school, or New Jersey at home, I am often found in Wyoming, where my family will be moving in the next couple of years. Most of you know me for my photos of foxes, owls and bears. I hope that in the upcoming years my education and photography can help me become a voice for conservation efforts in our rapidly changing world.
