Student, Photographer, and video producer in Flagstaff, Arizona
Writer, photographer, video producer, photojournalist, cyclist, ecocentrist, veganarchist, curious earthling. Explorer of social, political, and environmental topics.
Through photography as well as videography and writing, I seek to both critically explore and creatively communicate important stories, ideas, topics, issues, and current events related to people, animals, and the environment.
I'm originally from Southern California, but moved to Tucson, Arizona in 2011, and then to Flagstaff, Arizona in 2014. In between, I've served/traveled with AmeriCorps NCCC (and FEMA Corps) around the US for two years and also Southwest Conservation Corps in Tucson.
Currently I am a full-time undergraduate student at Northern Arizona University (NAU) working toward a bachelor's degree in Environmental & Sustainability Studies with minors in Sociology and Photojournalism & Documentary Studies.
Academic areas I am focused on include political ecology, cultural politics, environmental ethics, environmental philosophy, environmental sociology, environmental justice, social and ecological sustainability, environmental communication, environmental photojournalism, ecofeminism, and nature-society relations.
In addition to being a student, I also work for NAU e-Learning Center's Creative Design Group as a Video Production Assistant and The Lumberjack student newspaper as a Staff Photographer (having previously held positions as Web Content Director, Web Chief, and Photo Editor).
