Hello world! I owe it to you, the readers, that you know me beyond a name on your computer screen. So I will throw you all a bone and let you know a little bit about myself. I was born on June 17th, 1995 in Oak Lawn, Illinois and was raised in Homer Glen, IL for the first 18 years of my life. Homer Glen is a little suburb southwest of the city of Chicago by about 40 miles.
My family consists of my mom, dad and my sister, all of whom I love dearly and owe the world to. As a kid, above all, I loved having fun: Hanging out with my friends, playing sports, watching cartoons, listening to music, everything. I was just out to have an adventure in this crazy world we live in.
I was so focused on having fun that I never really gave any thought with what I wanted to do for a career. That answer at least became a little clearer in high school when I decided in my junior year I was going to pursue a journalism degree in college. Following stints on high school newspapers, sports websites and college campus radio stations, I find myself on my next adventure writing for Vox Magazine and the Columbia Missourian…and I intend to make the most of it.
