About

I am an Emmy-nominated photojournalist at the Tampa Bay Times in St. Petersburg, Florida. I cover college football, daily features and shoot, produce and edit narrative videos. Before moving to St. Pete, I interned at the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the Baltimore Sun Media Group. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Visual Journalism from the University of Miami in 2014 and attended the NYTimes Portfolio Review in 2017. I have been involved with the National Association of Black Journalists since I was a student and I am currently the secretary of the Visual Task Force.  I am available for a variety of freelance work.
