My passion for photography developed in tandem with my appreciation for history. Growing up, I traveled with my parents, who loved archaeology, to historical sites. I always had my camera in hand. I came to college with the intention of becoming a photographer, but soon discovered I loved working with preexisting images to tell stories instead.
I am an online interactive storytelling fan-girl, a cinephile and avid consumer of photo and history books. I also enjoy sharing useful resources to people with interesting ideas, leaving me with the sneaking suspicion I was a librarian in a past life.
As a photo editing intern for NBCNews.com and TV Guide magazine, I’ve worked on a range of projects; from daily breaking news photo galleries to selecting television episodic images for printed articles. However, the assignments I’ve found most interesting are those that reflect on the past. Last summer, I interned at the George Eastman Museum doing photography exhibition research.
A recent graduate from the Photojournalism program at Rochester Institute of Technology, I plan to pursue a career that will marry my love of picture editing, history and interactive storytelling.
