Photographer moves forward, camera in hand

Editor’s note: A 30 column is a chance for departing permanent staff to say farewell and reflect on their time spent in The Daily Texan’s basement office. The term comes from the old typesetting mark (-30-) to denote the end of a line. 

As I sit here reminiscing on my time with the Texan trying to put how much this experience has meant to me in words, I cant help but realize I’m better at speaking through photographs. From meeting Leon Bridges, late night trips to 7-11, getting checked by Secret Service, to staying up until 6 a.m. every night working SXSW, I have made so many memories here. When I first began, I never would have thought that I would find a family in this dimly lit basement. The Texan has allowed me to flourish both as a person and photographer. My time here has left me with over 10,000 photographs and so many stories to tell. Although I will miss the Texan, I am looking forward to my next adventure.
