I earned a bachelors degree in mass communication with an emphasis in photojournalism and and graduated in spring of 2013. I have had experience in many diverse publications in Utah that have offered a wide range of opportunity in the field as a photographer. Among those publications are southern Utah's Spectrum newspaper, University of Utah's Daily Utah Chronicle newspaper, SLUG Magazine, The Salt Lake Tribune, the Outdoor Retailer Daily magazine, Lessons magazine, Continuum magazine, many freelance opportunities and currently the Park Record newspaper. I have had the responsibilities of managing social media to contribute to the continuing growth of each publication in the digital environment. I continually keep publications websites, online media galleries, and Facebook up to date. All of my experience with each publication has assisted in providing the ability to comfortably shoot a wide variety of subjects in a wide range of environments. I continually seeks opportunities with setting new goals, personal expectations and challenges to work towards. As the photo editor I have learned how to develop time management, attention to detail, social skills and the importance of communication and organization in a newsroom for a successful daily publication.
