Photographer Extra-Ordinary

Thank you for looking over my application! I saw on your site that ThinkGeek was hiring a product photographer in my backyard, and I knew I'd be a great fit. 




I'm on track to graduate in May 2018 with a degree in multiplatform journalism from the University of Maryland, College Park.

You may be asking yourself,

What's Multiplatform Journalism?

Great question!

It means that while I specialize in photography, I am a well-rounded media expert, proficient in writing as well as editing photos, video, and audio.

Bedroom photoshoots

Bedroom photoshoots


I have been taking photographs professionally for the last four years.

Starting with an art class in high school, I've learned how to shape light to make my subjects look good. While I'm often in situations relying on natural or found light, working in a studio is my speciality because it allows me full control.

Photography has taken me from photoshoots in my bedroom to the White House -- and everywhere in between.


Thank you for making it this far through my cover letter! Up at the top of this page, you'll find links to my photo projects that I feel are the most relevant to this position at ThinkGeek, my full resume, and an extended photojournalism portfolio for you to peruse.

I look forward to hearing from you and setting up an interview! If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out!
