“I capture images to freeze time in this constantly changing world. There are endless possibilities when creating art, and I am determined to captivate others in the process. Currently, I am working to improve my photography business while I obtain my education at RIT in the Advertising Photography program.

 

A significant highlight of my freshman and sophomore year at RIT was volunteering for the Special Olympics New York Winter Games as a member of the portrait team. Although this event only lasted a single day, I was overwhelmed with excitement from the relationships and memories I created with the upperclassmen and professors. I crave these types of connections with individuals, especially in the photography community. Collaborating closely nurtured my discovery, and I look forward to maintaining and preserving these relationships throughout my career. I feel empowered as I continue to explore in hope to contribute to this network along the way.”
