about me

Storyteller. Podcaster. Web Designer. Content Creator.

In May 2019, I wrapped up my bachelor’s in journalism from the University of Georgia as a First Honor Graduate, summa cum laude with highest honors, finishing both a Spanish minor and a certificate in new media. Just one year later, I graduated with my master’s in Emerging Media from UGA, making me an official Double Dawg.

My last few years have been spent working as a graduate assistant for UGA’s New Media Institute and as lead curator for TEDxUGA, an independently organized TED event with talks that have been viewed more than 3 million times.

Currently seeking full-time and freelance work in audio production, web design, and digital communications.
