Who Am I?

"Loyalty to a petrified opinion never broke a chain or freed a human soul." -Mark Twain.

I believe you have to fully commit to anything that you want to achieve or accomplish in life.

Otherwise, you may never discover, seek or meet your full potential.

I am a senior at Oklahoma State University. Go Pokes! I will graduate this December with a bachelor's degree in Journalism & Broadcasting with a Public Relations focus option.

I am seeking employment in the Strategic Communications field, whether it be in a sports, agency or in-house environment. I want to immerse myself in all aspects of public relations that I can.
