I am a fifth year multi-platform journalism major at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, expecting to graduate in May 2017.

I have been a columnist, a reporter, a copy editor and a section editor for my university’s independent student publication, The BG News. I am currently the co-editor in chief for the multicultural publication, The Obsidian and the Vice President of BGSU’s Students for Sensible Drug Policy chapter.

My areas of interest include drug policies in America including the mass incarceration of people of color, medical and recreational marijuana legalization, issues affecting the Native American population on reservations, the Pokémon video games and pop culture. I am also hoping to write more about advocacy and social justice issues and historical pieces/portrayal analysis.
