2013 Graduate / Journalism, Integrative Arts, Sports Journalism
I am passionate about faces and emotion. I am passionate about capturing moments and recording them forever, for posterity. I am passionate about storytelling. Each photograph, each video is a story in visual form. Sometimes words are not needed because an expression or an action says more than words ever could. That's what I love about photography and video; you can look at a picture or a clip and feel what the subject was feeling just by using your eyes - being sympathetic. I am currently a senior majoring in Photojournalism and Integrative Arts and am also part of the John Curley Center for Sports Journalism. I work for Penn State Athletic Communications as a sports photographer and have aspirations of working in the media, photography and journalism fields when I graduate. I just started up my own business, Meladiography, photographing portraits, weddings, sports, you name it. I'm a daughter, a sister, a photographer, a writer, a designer, a singer, a dancer, a baker, a football enthusiast and a health advocate.
