bio

I’m a visual journalist and multimedia producer at St. Louis Public Radio in St. Louis, where I’ve covered immigration issues, protests against police brutality and the movement for black lives. I also serve as a mentor and educator with NPR’s Next Generation Radio project.

Previously, I was a staff photojournalist at the Naples Daily News in Naples, Florida after working at the Tampa Bay Times as a photo intern, video producer and online picture editor.

In 2018, I was named one of The Lit List’s “30 photographers to watch.” I’ve been invited to speak at the annual Public Radio News Directors conference and the inaugural Reynolds Journalism Institute’s Women in Journalism Workshop.

My work has been recognized by Pictures of the Year International, the Florida Society of News Editors, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the National Association of Black Journalists. In 2014, I was selected to participate in The New York Times'  New York Portfolio Review.

I'm available for freelance assignments in St. Louis and the surrounding areas. Past clients include The New York Times, ESPN's The Undefeated, BuzzFeed News, VICE News and National Geographic.
