Kelly West
Multimedia Photojournalist

I'm the Texas transplant on this project, and I drove an incredibly indirect 5000 miles in order to get to Republic, Washington this summer. I'm a multimedia photojournalist, which means (at the moment) that I take still pictures, shoot videos, record audio, and try to think of creative ways to make you want to look at it online. I love my job because it means I get to ask a lot of questions, learn new things, meet amazing people, and sometimes even take cool pictures. I also love listening to music, drumming on the steering wheel, laughing at inappropriate volumes in movie theaters, making to do lists of things I've already done, and eating food with melted cheese on it. I hope you enjoy the work we're doing here.
