Sara is based in Brooklyn and recently earned her Master’s Degree in Photojournalism from Ohio University. She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for her undergraduate education, where she majored in journalism with a focus in visual communication. She has shot assignments from her bedroom window, and traveled as far as the Middle East and South America for others. Her work has been published by the Baltimore Sun and various other publications, as well as by a number of Latin American non-profits and NGOs. She loves bagels and lox as much as she loves Carolina Barbecue, and roots for the Tar Heels and the Yankees knowing full well that she will be resented for both allegiances. She recognizes that haters will, indeed, hate. She enjoys yoga, cooking, nail polish, quoting the Big Lebowski at inappropriate times, and hating the Blue Devils.
