Class of 2021

I am a nomadic photographer, journalist and storyteller motivated to continue developing my reporting skills across multiple digital platforms and to grow professionally.

I have lived abroad for over 21 years in various countries, most recently in Bujumbura, Burundi.

I am currently a first year student at U.C. Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. My goal is to learn from those around me and to share my expertise in order to make the world a smaller place.
