I am a graduate student in the Multimedia Journalism track at the University of South Florida in Tampa. One of the first multimedia contents I produced as part of a class project is about volunteers’ efforts to save Brown Pelicans hooked on fishing lines on the Skyway Bridge.
One of my other passions is to document the lives of disadvantaged people in my community. Happy Workers Children’s Center is one of the oldest daycare centers in St. Petersburg. This center has a special curriculum that focuses on lessons of justice, peace, sustaining of the earth, and green practices. So it may not come as a surprise that there is a waiting list at Happy Workers Childrens' Center. What is less obvious, though, is the fact that the center strives to make its services affordable for any family that wants to send a child there.
It is hard to measure the difference my stories make. But I wish that they make a difference.
My passion is visual communication. I love to tell the truth through moving or still images. I believe that photography is the best medium for self awareness.
My work has been published in various media outlets, inlcuding the St. Petersburg Times, TBO, WMNF and WUSF.
