Editorial

In January 2017, I began serving as Editor-in-Chief of The Wheaton Record. I oversaw a staff team of reporters, designers and editors as we published our weekly periodical newspaper. Some highlights from the year included sending my staff to cover the presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C., acquiring press passes to the NCAA’s Final Four championship, sending staff to IFYC’s Interfaith Youth Core in Atlanta, and publishing a special edition final issue with the creative team of Kodon.

Journalism

In May 2016, I graduated from the World Journalism Institute, an intensive training program in Asheville, North Carolina. I then worked as a reporter (intern) for WORLD Magazine, covering breaking news like healthcare reform, Senate votes, and landmark Supreme Court cases. My portfolio now includes World Digital and World Radio, The Washington Post, The College Fix, Family Christian Stores, Monument Publishing, and The Wheaton Record. For information on my photo journalism, please see my photography website.
