Professional Writing and Journalism

Currently, I am a student in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. I'm working toward a degree in Journalism and developing my skills in journalistic writing, Spanish, and web design and development. Although I live in and am originally from Minneapolis, I grew up in Brainerd, Minnesota and graduated from Brainerd Senior Highschool in 2009.

I have a lot of passion and respect for the the written word and have been writing creatively for a large portion of my life. Great story-telling is what I'm about.

Most of my down time is sent spent either reading good books or watching classic movies. As a hobby, I play guitar, harmonica, and I have a particular affinity towards blues music. While I do frequent many of the local breweries that Minneapolis has to offer, I am also working on my own skills as a homebrewer.
