Hannah Wilson, Visual Editor

Hi, my name is Hannah Wilson, and I am the Visuals Editor this year. I joined The Pitt News my first year as a photographer and I am so excited to take on the role of editor as a junior this year. I am majoring in marketing with a certificate in digital media. I love capturing moments in time that people want to remember for years to come! 

Amaya Lobato, Assistant Visual Editor

Hi! I’m Amaya, assistant visual editor at TPN this year. I’m a junior majoring in media and professional communications and minoring in film and media studies. Joining the visuals desk as a photographer during my freshman year encouraged me to pursue a career in photojournalism. I fell in love with photographing current events and meeting the most random people on photo assignments. I’m passionate about capturing everyday moments and I always carry a camera with me (preferably film). 

Patrick Cavanagh, Multimedia Editor

Hi, my name is Pat Cavanagh and I’m excited to be the multimedia editor this year. Like many others, I found my passion for journalism working for The Pitt News, beginning my sophomore year as a photographer. As a senior majoring in film and digital media, my goal is to create more advanced video stories and help build a stronger foundation for the multimedia department to continue. When I’m not taking videos or photos for TPN I enjoy singing, frolicking, and general tomfoolery. 

Annika Esseku, Layout Editor

Hey! I’m Annika Esseku and I’m the layout editor for this year. I started working at The Pitt News during my first year at Pitt, but I originally started as an illustrator. I’m currently a junior majoring in neuroscience and minoring in chemistry and studio arts. If you see me around campus I’ll most likely be blasting music through my headphones.
