Covers events in:


I work: For Little Caesars. About to start an internship for Kautex also

I enjoy: Chemistry, Photography, Concerts, Guitar Hero, Reading, Writing, Exploring new places

Goals/Dreams: It would be so cool to be both a Chemical Engineer and a concert photographer. I have so many things I would love to do. I aspire to take photos just as cool and my favorite photographer Joelle Kool. I would love to write a story that could be published. I started learning guitar. Wouldn’t it be so cool to play for my church on Sunday mornings? I could go on and on

Tell us about your style, and what you contribute to Splice that makes you unique
My love for concert photography. I noticed that a lot of photos are taken farther away. I love to get close-ups of each band member so I can see their expressions on their faces.

Splice (Bucket) List: Skillet, Starset, Sick Puppies, NF, Lindsey Stirling

Guilty Pleasures: You mean the things that I am embarrassed to admit I love? I am very open about things I like. I love Christian and worship music. I will belt out all the lyrics to Hannah Montana and Hilary Duff. Yes, I play Guitar Hero on the Nintendo Wii. No one should be afraid to admit what they love.

The first album I ever owned was: Hilary Duff: Most Wanted

My first concert was: Jeremy Camp, Rebeca St. James, and Newsboys

The last concert I attended was: Unstoppable Screams Tour in Flint, MI with RED and Lacey Sturm

If I could have attended any concert in history, I’d go back in time and see: I would love to see Skillet back in their Comatose days

Favorite non-photography activity? Writing stories

What was the first concert you photographed? Depends on the definition. I started taking pictures when I was at Pointfest 2011. I took good quality photos at Wonderjam 2015 but with an iPhone. I got a good camera and started trying to take good photos in Indianapolis for Skillet’s Unleashed Tour

What is your favorite non-writing activity? Drawing or reading

If you could interview any celebrity in history, who would it be? Martin Luther (The man that started the Protestant Reformation)

I get mistaken for this celebrity: Does Pocahontas count?

The last movie I saw was: Black Panther

My favorite book is: The Mystery by Lacey Sturm

My favorite TV show is: Mystery Diagnosis or Avatar: The Last Airbender

My favorite website is: skillet.com

My favorite food is: Rice

Five items that are always in your refrigerator: Milk, bread, a Lightbulb, shelves, drawers

My favorite non-musical activity: Writing

My most treasured possession is: My cross necklace

My biggest phobia is: Heights

My biggest pet peeve is: Popular things. Example. Skillet’s most popular song is Monster. Starset’s most popular song is My Demons. If someone told me those were their favorite songs, I would be pretty annoyed

My favorite place in the world is: Home

My dream car is: I suppose I am cool with a Chevy Malibu

My hidden talents are: Does Guitar Hero count?

An interesting fact about me that people don’t expect is:  I watch Grey’s Anatomy. Don’t be fooled. It’s awful

My crush is: Daniel Butler. Oh wait, do we mean celebrity crush? Nick Jonas then.

When you’re not photographing great concerts, writing about them, interviewing artists, doing album reviews… what can we find you doing? Reading, writing, watching Netflix, driving until I get lost
