About Me

I am a strategic communications professional based in Washington, D.C. Since August 2015, I have been working as a graduate research assistant at the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs. This is my homepage with links to my photography, my blog, and my resume.

After years of creating content for digital and print platforms, I have learned to combine compelling copy with rich visuals. My background in journalism and public policy helps me to hit the ground running in a variety of strategic communication environments. I am an experienced photographer who has worked with clients like Disney/ESPN Images, C Spire Wireless, Mud & Magnolias Magazine, and the Associated Press. I use Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere, and a variety of other tools to produce graphics, GIFs, and videos to complement my digital content. 

You can see drafts of my professional work on this page. If you have any other questions about what I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
