I'm a digital journalist covering agriculture and food production for Spectrum News as a Report for America Corp Member in Syracuse, New York. I graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications with a master's degree in photojournalism in May 2021. In December 2018, I graduated from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa, as a double major in digital media and psychology.
Growing up on a farm in Schaller, Iowa, has led me to be interested in producing work about agriculture and telling stories related to farming. In January 2024, I was recognized as Journalist of the Year by the New York State Agricultural Society.
I have experience in reporting, audio storytelling, photographic storytelling and video storytelling; and am proficient with DSLR and mirrorless camera systems, Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, Audition, Photo Mechanic, and Premiere Pro.
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors, cooking, gardening and hanging with my dogs. I am available for work in Central New York and occasionally, in Northwest, Iowa.
