about me

 

With a B.A. in Film and Media studies from the University of Kansas, I have pursued my passion for telling compelling visual stories that highlight the creativity and goodwill of others in my community. I started my career at KJHK 90.7 in Lawrence, KS and have gone on to specialize in documentary filmmaking, in-studio musical performances, music videos and event photography. I am always looking for new challenges to tackle and compelling stories to help tell. This site acts as a portfolio of some of the projects, stories, and moments I have helped bring to life.
