I'm a digital journalist and recent graduate of the University of North Texas. I'm open to work and seeking full-time work in any media market. When I'm not studying or writing feature stories, I'm reviewing independent books pre-launch, producing art, blogging on my creative writing and review site or educating myself on race in the U.S.. I am proficient in AP Style, Microsoft Office and Adobe Suite.
My specific areas of interest in journalism include copy editing, content editing, arts, trending topics, entertainment, race and social justice. However, I'm open to diversifying my topics and venturing into other areas of coverage.
Some of my hobbies include listening to podcasts, open mic poetry, exploring new areas and listening to jazz, neo-soul, R&B, and lo-fi music.
