M.A.R.S at Rogers High School.

Along with students from Rogers Heritage High School helping with the string section, over 70 orchestra, band and choir students from Rogers High School played for 1,179 fourth graders from 14 Rogers schools Friday, Jan. 27, 2012 at Rogers High School. The objective of the concert, called Music Appreciation in Rogers Schools, or M.A.R.S, is to inspire students at an early age to be interested in music, introduce them to the different types of instruments or sections of choir and help them decide what instrument they would like to play.

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).
