Writing and editing always intrigued me growing up. When I bought my first camera after graduating high school, photography became the next big obsession. In college, I began writing scripts and producing segments for radio. I still dabble in code, because I find designing webpages fascinating. I like to do everything.
The same can be said of my media experience: in three years, I have worked for a city newspaper, college alt-weekly, regional magazine, daily news website and freelanced for several other publications.
For now, ‘doing everything’ happens at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I’m a history and sociology double major, minoring in professional writing, and editor-in-chief of the nationally-recognized alt-weekly, The Bottom Line. After graduating from UCSB, I plan to pursue a career in print and digital journalism.
