who am i?

I'm a graduate of Baylor University (class of 2019), where I earned a BBA in Marketing and Entrepreneurship with minors in leadership and studio art. While in undergrad, I served as a mentor in Baylor's Leadership Living & Learning Community, where I helped freshmen adjust to college life and offer resources for their successes. I was also a member of Baylor's American Marketing Association chapter, where I served as an Adobe campus representative. In that role, I hosted several workshops on campus that taught users the basics of several of Adobe's Creative Suite products. 

When I graduated in 2019, I moved to Austin, Texas where I worked with the men's boutique Stag Provisions. I have a good bit of working experience in retail and food service, where I have also served as a barista, cashier, and bartender in several Waco-area establishments.

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, I returned to Baylor and successfully earned a Master of Arts in Journalism. Baylor's Journalism program taught me quite a bit in communications theories and public relations basics, which have built off several of the core items from my undergraduate experience. My thesis studied how a brand's owned media channels can generate conversations about advocacy issues, and how these advocacy issues might affect a consumer's perception of legitimacy towards the brand. 

I'm a hobbyist-level automotive photographer with additional experience in portrait, lifestyle, and product photography. I have been featured in online automotive journals Stanceworks & Petrolicious, and the Baylor student-led journal Buttoned Bears. Photography affords me the privilege of working with some awesome people and groups over the years, including: Wheelpros, Giovanna Wheels, KC Trends Motorsports, Coupe Cartel, C3 International, Tyler Coey, Never Done Design House, Common Grounds Woodway, and more.

I am passionate about small brands, responsible consumption, great storytelling and most things photography. By combining my degrees in both business marketing and journalism, I hope to find an entry-level position in advertising or communications. I am actively seeking account coordinator, project management or similar roles. I am actively seeking full-time, remote employment. 

If I'm not taking photos then I'm playing with my dog Toast, or shopping for an old car that I probably don't need.
