This is probably my most favorite from all of them I shot in Oregon. I love the way the colors fade out from the the foreground to the background. Oregon has great scenery that produces the most beautiful pictures. The beauty of this landscape is the reason why I love Oregon so much. Everything on the west coast feels so different from the east coast, and after living here for my whole life, I would love to be able to live there.
Recently, I’ve gotten to get to know a mutual friend in more depth and his story really inspires me. I chose him as my subject for my final multimedia project for a photography class that I’m taking this semester. I don’t want to spoil the story that isn’t yet produced, but stay tuned, and you’ll see the final story.
This photo is a snapshot I got from a board hanging in his room. The center, “i am what i am” is a very deep but inspiring reminder for everyone to have. Stay true to you, and good will come from it.
This was one of my favorite pictures from my trip to the west coast this spring break. I love how there are always to very contrasting things always juxtaposed in a way that is beautiful – even on the overcast days. Taking pictures of landscapes is a fun hobby because you literally capture a piece of your exploration in a snapshot. It’s almost like seeing nature, even the world, in a new and different way.
The very warm colors gradually shifted to cool colors makes this painting feel so serene, not to mention the ocean roaring in the background. Oregon never ceases to surprise me with it’s beauty.
Recently, I photographed a women’s tennis match at my university. I used a 70-200mm lens on my camera, and this was one of my favorite edits from the shoot. I love how you can see how focused the person in the foreground is, and also the action of the person in the background. It really captures the action of a doubles match in one photo.
Tennis is such a hard sport to photograph and make look action packed, since there is little to no contact, and most of the moves are repetitive.

Back in October of 2016, I volunteered to do the Createathon@USC. Createathon@USC is a 24-hour creative marathon to create campaigns for non-profit organizations. There were about 7-10 different teams each with a different non-profit organization. Our organization happened to be Be The Match, a bone marrow registry.
Our target audience were males 18-24, so we decided to steer our campaign in a more promiscuous direction with lots of sexual innuendos, because what better way to catch a college male’s attention . We produced a mascot, Mr. Shwabb, and came up with different promotional deliverables. This is a t-shirt that is being sold by the Delta Zeta sorority as a fundraiser for Be The Match since they are partnered with the non-profit. It was a very special feeling to have been a part of this team.
We entered our campaign into the ADDY Awards contest, and WON AN ADDY! I knew we had a good campaign, but I was shocked to hear that our campaign actually won an ADDY award, one of the most prestigious awards in the advertising world.
