All my life I have had a passion for technology and an enthusiasm for pop culture. It has always amazed me how certain trends, ideas, and celebrities can have such a profound effect on the culture around us.

I have also been published in the digital and print space for Locale Magazine, a monthly lifestyle publication highlighting the “California state of mind.” I stayed on the pulse of everything up-and-coming for them by searching out local hot spots, attending indie concerts, conducting interviews with influencers, and writing featured reviews for the magazine and website that receive over 60,000 unique visitors per month. Through Locale, I have developed exceptional collaborative and interpersonal skills, helping me become a dynamic team player with well-developed communication skills, accustomed to performing in deadline–driven environments.
