At the end of October, a group of Daily Wildcat folks and I had the opportunity to attend the ACP/CMA National College Media Convention 2017 in Dallas. This is the third college media conference I have attended, and by far one of the defining moments of my college career which is quickly coming to an end. This year, the Daily Wildcat was presented with several awards, some of which are often considered the highest honors in collegiate journalism. I am incredibly motivated by and prideful of the hard work our staff continues to dedicate to the Daily Wildcat.
Last week I had the opportunity to shoot the NCAA tournament Sweet 16 matchup between No. 2 seed Arizona Wildcats and No. 11 seed Xavier Musketeers on assignment for my school newspaper, The Daily Wildcat. Arizona men's basketball lost to the Musketeers 71-73, cutting our San Jose journey short. While it was not the win we had hoped for, it was still an amazing experience working alongside professional photographers from media outlets like Getty, Associated Press and more.
Shout out to these student journalists for all their hard work in covering Arizona men's basketball this season–y'all have produced some killer content.

If Tucson is known for anything, it's rodeo (well really, for a lot of things but let's just disregard those for the sake of this post).
For the third year in a row I had the opportunity to cover the annual Fiesta de los Vaqueros, this time as an intern with the Arizona Daily Star. This was no average rodeo, blessed with abundant sunshine, warm temperatures and the occasional sunburn. No, this rodeo was wet and cold—oh, and did I say wet? Nonetheless, my camera survived the rain and I made it out fairly intact as well.
Below are general action shots from opening day, Saturday, Feb. 18, of the 92nd Annual La Fiesta de los Vaqueros, including images of Saddle Bronc Rider Taos Muncy who the reporter featured in his story.

I recently had the opportunity to attend the ACP National College Media Convention in Washington D.C. To say the least, it was an amazing experience interacting with fellow student journalists and meeting individuals such as Donna Brazile. Here are a few snapshots from my trip:
