Whether it’s doing a deep dive into the world of fanfiction from a publisher’s perspective or interviewing independent authors about their craft, I’ve enjoyed working with creative and marketing professionals to create content that is both informative and entertaining. In my experience, there’s nothing better than setting your sights on a new topic and sinking your teeth in.
Sometimes, approaching a new topic as an outsider gives you an advantage over specialists when it comes to explaining technically dense material to the general public. At Chapel Hill, I participated in student research and spent much of my undergraduate career studying biochemistry–I’m no stranger to jargon and, trust me, I know how little anyone wants to read it.

I first got into photography when a buddy of mine said it was the perfect adult hobby. I bought a camera before I went to visit him in Colorado and have been in love ever since.

In storytelling, photography can enrich your characterization of a world and its characters. The language of images and symbols adds layers to a scene, and a single image can snare a reader with intrigue and pull them further into your narrative. Your photos might clarify the meaning of your words, or they might add in a new element entirely. Ultimately, photography is just another tool in your storytelling toolkit.
In 2019, you can’t get away without some degree of design knowhow. Whatever adventure you’re on, Photography is a valuable asset and can be used to elevate your reader’s experience when they’re on the trail with you.
