Bio: I am a first year MA student with interests in photography, propaganda, and race relation histories. Part of my focus centralizes around museum exhibitions, and how they potentially continue the propagated efforts of past by not connecting the historical use of photography. Using photography for documentation purposes, in many cases, led to subversive propaganda that was not made available for to the general public.  

As an undergrad, I was an active member of Phi Alpha Theta. I presented papers at two different regional conferences. My undergraduate thesis focused on how the press affected the guilty verdict of the last man hanged in South Carolina, during a time of high racial tension.

I have a passion for art. I have volunteered in an art gallery, participated in photography workshops, and have had my own work displayed in galleries. I like to combine this passion with my love of history. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
