Writer and Photojournalist

Location icon United States of America

Hi! Welcome to my clippings profile! I'm a 24-year-old from Los Angeles and I recently graduated from Chico State in the spring. At Chico State I triple majored in Journalism, Spanish and Latin American Studies. I also had the opportunity to work in the award-winning newspaper called, The Orion, where I worked as a photojournalist for the arts and entertainment section. Aside from working as a photojournalist, I also accompanied my colleagues and was in charge of visuals for their articles. In my spare time, I write on my blog about my travels to Mexico, specifically focusing on the state of Oaxaca. I also enjoy photographing people in their natural environments, landscapes, and hope to work on a photographic series about basketball in Oaxaca soon.
