I’m an undergraduate student at the University of Colorado at Boulder working toward a B.S. in News Editorial Journalism and Computer Science, with an anticipated graduation date of May 2016. I will also graduate with a Technology, Arts, and Media certificate through the ATLAS program.
Aside from my passion for journalism, I’m an artist and photographer; I take more pictures than my memory cards have room for and my walls are covered in paintings.
During my time at CU I helped to design a trans-media guide for the Western Wildfire Project working alongside Michael Kodas and the Scripps Fellows with the Center for Environmental Journalism, fact-checked political ads in the 2014 campaign season, and spent the first few months of the summer of 2015 covering the Aurora Theater Trial from the courtroom. In late June of 2015 I moved to Valencia, Spain for two months to work as an intern for Espectaculos Orange, a company that organizes concerts and music festivals, and continued to help with trial coverage whenever possible. I am currently working on a long-term project focusing on officer involved shootings in Colorado with the Colorado Independent.
Eleutheromania (n.) the intense and irresistible desire for freedom. This feeling drives my motivation as a journalist, artist, photographer, and traveler. My goal is to see, experience and share all that I can throughout life, and I can’t wait to see where my next adventure takes me!
All of the pieces of and on this website are mine; the articles are written by me, photographs taken and edited by me, and art made by me, unless otherwise attributed.
