I love to shoot and edit video. Finding the right shot, making impacts visually and presenting something original and beautiful is exactly what I strive for when I produce photos and video. In addition to shooting and editing, I’m also a published writer, with pieces featured on wvuncovered.com. I enjoy making data visualizations that are elegant, simple and easily understood. I also have experience with telling stories through photography, designing a photo layout and publishing a photo-based story.
