My Story

At 14, I used to spend hours everyday learning how to add code to my Tumblr blog. I found those skills quickly transferrable to when I started my own blog at 16, to tell my own stories through writing, graphic design, and photography. I purchased my first DSLR and started practicing regularly, setting up flat lays before the term was even coined, transforming my bedroom into a styling shoot for products, and taking outfit photos before school early in the morning.

Eventually, I decided to study Journalism at Ryerson University where I was able to learn and get hands on experience in all aspects of the field and beyond.

Now I want to use my experience and knowledge in this field to help people tell their story through various media elements; writing, design, and photography.
