Nickname: Jenn, JazzyB
Expertise: Filmmaker, Photographer, Editor
Bio: I’m a multimedia photojournalist from Southern Illinois. I received my M.S. in Digital Documentary in 2015 from Southern Illinois University – Carbondale, where I also received my B.S. in Photojournalism in 2012. Through multimedia student fellowships with The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, I’ve gotten the opportunity to travel to Nepal, India, and the Dominican Republic. Because I come from a traditional still-photography background, I value building relationships with the subject to find the perfect frame that encompasses their spirit. I’m the newest addition to the ALAS Media team and I look forward to telling and sharing stories with Rosa and Eli!
