I am a continuous student of photography. I obtained a double major in both English and Government from George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. While studying at George Mason, I was a founding member of The Stylus, a student operated newsletter for the Arlington campus. I enjoy covering topics including local business and arts. I take and edit my own photographs and videos as well.
