Located in the Chicagoland area.

I'm a 2008 graduate of Ball State University with a Bachelor's in Women's Studies and Photo-journalism.
I have been taking photos all my life, mostly crazy snapshots but got serious about it my senior year of high school. Amazingly got Best in show at the art show and from there really started putting effort and thought into my photos.

My original goal was to have fun and capture great moments in the lives of friends and family but after getting involved with Women's Studies I want to change the world.
I want to travel and bring to light many women's issues that go unnoticed or are severely down played by the general media. My hopes in the long run to work with a magazine or e-publication but for now and I hope always I want to keep up with my original goal and then some.
