Electrify Your Strings

I had the great pleasure and opportunity to check out the rehearsal for Thursday night’s Electrify Your Strings concert at Rogers High School. As a big music fan, especially of rock music and covers, I was very excited, and impressed, to see orchestra students busting out contemporary rock hits. I’m always impressed by the students at schools here in NWA and today’s shoot was no exception. These kids know how to play and it sounded really great!

I'm originally from Colorado and I was introduced to photojournalism in high school while working on the school's yearbook. In 2011, I graduated from Colorado State University with degrees in journalism and art. This is my first “real-world” job, but while in college I worked for CSU's daily student newspaper and I interned for Denver-based Westword, the Colorado Eagles (ACHL hockey team) and Johnson and Wales University. I cherish analog photography and I like to shoot on a medium-format Mamyia RB67 whenever I can. While I'm not at work, I enjoy doing all sorts of physical activities, especially mud runs and Crossfit, and I love to bake desserts (which are usually consumed by my coworkers).
