I have excellent interpersonal skills, am out-going and passionate of LGBTQ+ culture. My photography and writing highlights LGBTQ+ and female focused bands, brands and businesses. I take pride in covering content and working with clients who are a part of the LGBTQ+ community in NYC, Austin, LA and other major cities. In 2016 I was able to travel to France, Amsterdam and Morocco for a personal photography project. In my spare time I am a drummer and a designer/artist.
