Writer. Photographer. Editor.
I am a student studying journalism at Temple University in Philadelphia. I often have a coffee cup in my hand, a book in tow and an idea in my head.
I believe every person has a story worth telling. All you’ve got to do is ask the right questions and capture the right moment.
