FLW Crowns Winner

Sunday night, FLW crowned their 2014 winner at the Beaver Lake portion of the bass fishing tour. The 10 competetors had some mighty larger catches, with four-day totals ranging 40-60 pounds of bass … EACH! That’s A LOT of fish! I’ve never been at a final weigh-in before, so it was cool to see the showmanship these anglers had when showing off their “kickers.” The event was also memorable because of a performance by Rodney Atkins. On his last song, “If You’re Going Through Hell,” he pulled up a young fan on stage to sing the song for him.

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).
