I was born and raised in the west suburbs of Chicago and I’m in my last semester at Ferris, studying Marketing with a concentration in Media. I’m very proud to be holding both the Multimedia Editor and Videographer position at the Torch. Growing up, my life revolved around sneakers, sports, and eventually photography. I rarely used my camera unless I was taking photos of shoes but that changed when I got to Ferris. I’ve developed my craft and interests in visual journalism even further through working at the Torch. My experience as a photographer forced me to learn how to work my camera. Working as the multimedia editor put me in a position to lead by example and my experience as a videographer has elevated my ability to craft a visual experience.
