Tessa Collinson
Hi, I’m Tessa, one of the entertainment editors for the HiLite with Natalie Khamis. I've worked previously as a graphics artist and reporter. Outside of HiLite, I make short films, play the ukulele and guitar, and work part-time at Freddy's. I moved to Indiana four years ago from Texas, and have also lived in Nevada and California, so snow is still a rather novel concept to me. On this page, you can find everything I’ve done for the HiLite. And on this page, you can find other design work and short films I have made.
