A Journey Collected
“A Journey Collected” is a self published and crowdfunded photography book that captures the rural and exhilarating landscape of Alberta, Canada.
The project is recorded solely on 35mm color negative film it sheds light on the unobserved and forgotten landscapes that surrounds us every day.
Artist Statement: There is a place that exists that is unconnected from the world. It is free of distractions, routine and the importance of time. We are granted with opportunities to authentically connect to others through everyday community. Our phones are laid aside due to the lack of WiFi, sparking new conversations and friendships as the present is the only thing we are able to see. Days begin to pass by quickly, yet they feel like years of memories created. Exploring new destinations brings a rush of excitement with the earth revealing itself at every turn the bus makes. The sun sets in the west preparing for a new day ahead. You tend to find yourself in sync to its rhythm as you sleep under a canopy of stars.

Kammok is an outdoor company designed to equip and inspire others for life changing adventure.
In 2017 I had the opportunity to be a part of the summer intern team at Kammok. The Content Creation Intern position consisted of creating a range of content using photography, graphic design, videography, motion graphics.
Specifically, I lead photography shoots for product launches and summer events, and launched Kammok’s presence on Instagram TV through creative direction. I designed graphics for our daily Instagram stories along with our event poster for our National Hammock Day campaign and captured moments on the road during our travels throughout the summer.
Photographs were archived on Flickr consistently during the summer, totaling over 1,600 photographs. Today, Kammok continues to utilize the product and lifestyle photographs for increasing growth on social and web platforms.
I had the opportunity to collaborate alongside Riddle & Bloom for a six week period, for a unique internship opportunity with Xfinity. Throughout the internship, I organized and executed digital and social media marketing, peer-to-peer outreach, events and activities to SCAD on campus students.
Our key focus during the internship was to educate students on how to access their Xfinity on Campus streaming accounts. In order to reach as many students as possible, one aspect of this outreach was a social media campaign; mainly on the platform of Instagram.
The idea was to gain students and my peers attention through weekly posting on Instagram. To achieve this goal my concept revolved around adventure and encouraging students to follow my journey with Xfinity as highlighted a few of favorite places in Savannah.
Our Mission is simple: Equipping students to know Christ, and tell of His amazing grace.
The Porch is a Scripture-based, gospel-saturated, Christ-centered college ministry of Bull Street Baptist Church supporting the church’s mission and vision. As a community that values God’s creativity and seeks to cultivate His beauty in all things, we lead students to use their artistic talents for the kingdom. We are committed to helping students grow in their love for Christ, and their commitment to the local church; therefore we will help and encourage students to join in the ministry activities and life of the larger body. We desire to see students walking as mature believers in Christ, equipped for every good work and deeply rooted in Him.
The Leadership Team is a selection of students within the ministry, who serve in directed areas as specific vision groups.
During the academic school year the Arts and Media Coordinator’s responsibilities include:
• Co-manages social media accounts across multiple platforms
• Photographs church and college events for social media and promotional use
• Creates content creation for ministry events
• Supervises and delegates The Porch Art Show: A quarterly gallery exhibition displaying current student work from the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Artist Statement: Each person has a specific place that they call home. Being unique to them and the memories that it holds both good and bad, together they create a community. Home can be a physical place or building, being surrounded with your family and friends, or even traditions that remind you of what once was. Regardless of our definition of home we are surrounded by a community. Our friends and family along with the environment that surrounds us creates our identity and the community we find comfort in. We find comfort in the ordinary and familiar as it connects our memory to those we had when we were younger.
For many people living in Savannah, this place and city is their home. For them it is all they have ever known and will never depart from their roots they have established. The city of Savannah is different as every city is, yet the amount of tourist attraction it receives is astounding. People from all over the country and surrounding states seek out Savannah as a tourist attraction. As they focus all their time and energy on the downtown, they do not recognize the hidden moments of beauty that are to be discovered.
When one ventures outside the city, there is much more than we initially realize. The environment that surrounds the city is equally important to the downtown culture that Savannah has created. Taking the time to stop and notice how the neighborhoods and places collide together they present to tell a different story of history, if we are willing to listen.

I was assigned a creative brief to design and create an event brochure in my Typography II course this past spring of my directed graphic design minor.
In the summer of 2018, I had the opportunity to attend the GoPro Games in Vail, Colorado. From personally experiencing the event I understood the nature of the event itself and how to reach the demographic of the outdoor community.
For this project my goal was to create an event brochure with a consistent brand identity, an engaging visual style and hierarchy through typesetting event activities.
