About Me

Photo Credit: Tyler Keehn Cleveland

I was born and raised in Cypress, California.  I attended the University of Texas at San Antonio and majored in information systems.  After I was done with school, I found a job working for a Internet-hosting company.  I am currently working there as a network engineer.

My story into photojournalism started when I went to a museum called, the Newseum in Washington D.C.  The museum had a photo gallery of all the Pulitzer-award-winning photos.  I was going through a roller coaster full of emotions at the gallery.  I cried, shook my fist in anger and smiled all within a hour's time.  I came away inspired by stories and images on display there.  After seeing that, I realized how powerful images and multi-media could be on people.  I wanted to give people that feeling of emotions that I felt and help contribute to our society.

I currently attend the University of North Texas.  I am a senior, majoring in photojournalism.  While going to school, I was fortunate enough to work on the Heart of Mexico project twice.  It was a great learning experience, it helped honed my multi-media skills and realize that there is so much of the world I want to discover.

I am always looking to improve my visual storytelling in anyway that I can or find ways that will open up more doors to stories.  For example, I am studying to be fluent in Spanish and have been working on my flying skills with unmanned aerial vehicles.  Later, I would like to learn Japanese and Mandarin.  It's all about having fun, making a difference in the world and being the best visual storyteller that I can be.
