- Research Program Mentor

Industry expert at Syracuse University


Photography entrepreneur videography


I graduated from Syracuse University where I completed a dual major in Photography at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises at the Martin J. Whitman School of Management. I was a staff photographer for the independently student-run school newspaper, The Daily Orange, and has been published by several major publications including the Washington Post. Since the age 8, I have been taking pictures around the world honing his craft as a Storyteller. As a storyteller, I am focused on creating content that will engage audiences.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

The power of an image

The power of an image is a project idea that puts cameras into different individuals' hands and allows different people to use the camera to tell stories. We can then see how the use of the camera, aids in the power of the story and how visuals help individuals tell stories.
