Born in Louisville, Kentucky. I am currently studying Photo Journalism and African American Studies at Western Kentucky University. I am immersed in the communities that are not seen on the news. I enjoy photojournalism and many forms of video. I enjoy the landscape of Bluegrass that my forefathers built and the mountains that shape our nation. I love how photojournalism can introduce you to people that are from different perspectives, backgrounds, states, and countries than your own, but will eventually have a lasting impact on you. I love the stories of the old timers and the people who never have their voices heard. A lover of the South, the rural West, and countries that I have yet to see.
