My Lens on the World

Fifth grade I won a pocket camera for reading the most books in class. Teen years were spent taking photos of Chicago architecture and writing for New Expression. High school: I studied art and architecture and spent summers painting at Chicago's School of the Art Institute. At UIC I studied commercial art, English, Spanish, African American literature and writing, I taught myself how to code websites and continued studies in web design, photojournalism and film production at Montgomery College.
