I grew up just south of Pittsburgh, PA. I've been riding horses since I was young. I started taking photographs freshman year of high school. I first got interested in the evolution of brands when I worked with Ithaca Beer to rebrand its company. After graduating from Ithaca College, I moved to DC and became a trademark secretary. For the past three years, I have been helping companies to protect their brand. In the future I hope to implement my knowledge which I am learned at Medill regarding the creation and protection of companies' brands.
