"In my sophomore year I was director of photography for the school newspaper.
I served an internship with photographer Michael Cerizo, and now I'm doing
an internship with an advertising agency, working on video production."
"To have my own fine art portrait studio."
"Michael Cerizo, the photographer I interned with. His specialty is black
and white, and I learned a lot from watching him work. And Duane Michals-I
like his sequence images and the way he often writes on the prints about
what the subjects were thinking or feeling. I also like how he uses long
exposure times to get movement and ghost images in the frame."
"I thought I'd be hesitant approaching people I don't know to take their
portraits, but it turned out I'm very comfortable, and it seems people
are comfortable around me when I take their pictures. Some of the people
here I didn't know at all when I took the pictures."
