Since receiving a Photojournalism degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 2004, I’ve been lucky enough to continue down a visual arts path in my 15-year-plus career.
For 11 years, I worked at The Austin Chronicle as a graphic designer and photographer, learning design hands-on through ad design and publication layout. I was also the first to live blog from a festival there. You can see some of my stories here. After leaving my desk job there, I’ve continued to freelance photography for the weekly, mainly for their music section. My work has been featured multiple times on the cover.
For 6 wonderful years, I taught at The Griffin School, teaching darkroom & digital photography, graphic design, and yearbook. Sharing my passions with high school students was incredibly rewarding, and I’m still in contact with some of them today.
In 2015, I started working for SXSW, where our company motto is to help creative people achieve their goals. It’s an incredible treat each year to watch all of our hard work come to fruition over 10 days in March. Continuing with publication work, I’m the Art Director for SXSWorld Magazine. laying out our print issues and curating digital photo galleries and articles.
I love being creative, and I’m extremely thankful that my career path has introduced me to others with the same passions, drive, and goals. With such a diverse background in the visual arts, I’ve learned all the rules, and I’ve enjoyed breaking them.
When I’m not working, I enjoy playing guitar & electric cello in my Nirvana cover band, reading, gardening, playing board games, and napping with my cat.
