A bit about me...

I've known I wanted to be an arts journalist since I was in middle school. Fascinated by how movies and television shows were made I would spend hours watching press junkets on YouTube and religiously watched CBS Sunday Morning and The Tonight Show to learn all about the newest releases and the people who made them. Knowing this I quickly decided journalism was for me. I've spent the last five years writing about local arts and culture in Spokane, Washington, Syracuse, New York and Charleston, South Carolina. I'm inspired by artists' stories and nothing brings me more joy than creating a multimedia package highlighting their talents. Through my work all over the country and my education at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University and Gonzaga University, I have been able to effectively cover the arts and can't wait to keep doing it.
