I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I took four years of art in high school and have always loved to draw and make things. During 4-H I got into photography and it has become a hobby of mine now. I hope to travel and study animals while also photographing them. I am from Santa Claus, Indiana. I am very interested in herpetology as well as you can see by my photography. I am using a Canon Rebel with a 50mm F/2.5 Macro lens for most of my shots.
