CV

Professional Summary

Graduating from the University of Kentucky in May of 2021 with a Bachelor's Degree in Equine Science and Management​ and a minor in Wildlife Biology and Management, it's needless to say that content creation like what I do now wasn't on my mind a couple years back,. Wildly enough, it was through an ornithology class my junior year at the university that drew me back into photography (as I am an avid bird lover). From then on, I had reignited a passion I had only knew in high school as I was the Editor in Chief of our school magazine my senior year in secondary school.

That ornithology class led me to doing a couple of paid shoots on the farm taking images of people and their horses, and eventually (in a round-a-bout way) led me to working for the University of Kentucky Ag Equine Programs. I re-taught myself in-design, photoshop, premier pro, illustrator and many more programs to be the best intern they could have. I soon found that love for graphic design as a whole, and eventually branched out further.
