Born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, I have always had a passion for art. Though I originally wanted to be a fine artist, I set my sights on photography as soon as a camera was first placed in my hands. I began my photography career just one year later, after I was hired as the staff photographer for a local music school. I soon picked up a second photography job as a studio assistant; I worked at both the school and the studio until I relocated to the city in 2012. 

Since moving to Philadelphia, I have received a Bachelors of Science in Photography at Drexel University. While at Drexel, I completed internships with Wendy Concannon Photography, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Philadelphia Daily News, and Philadelphia Magazine. I also spent several years as the assistant photography editor for Drexel's student newspaper, The Triangle, as well as several years as a staff photographer for Table Matters: an online food magazine. Currently, I am a freelance photojournalist for the Bucks County Courier Times and Digital First Media. I am also an event photographer for Chorus Photography and a staff photographer for Caviar. I am available for assignment and willing to travel. 

Beyond photography, I am passionate about volunteering, traveling, and music. When I don’t have a camera in my hand, it’s probably because I’m eating pizza.
