About Me

I'm currently a Senior in The Brian Lamb School of Communication at Purdue University. My major is concentrated towards media and journalism. Sports and writing are my two passions in life, which is why I want to be a sports journalist. I have had journalism experience through many classes here at Purdue and I feel comfortable in any situation that comes my way. I am willing to learn and do whatever it takes to get the job done. My dream job is to one day work at ESPN
