One could say journalism is in my blood. Two months before my first day in middle school, I started my first sports blog. A month before my first college class, I created the recruiting beat for my student media outlet.
Since then, I have written more than 400 stories while using photography and video to enhance storytelling.
Since April 2018, I've been the executive sports editor for the Marquette Wire, which involves overseeing any print, video or audio sports content appearing on the Wire's platforms.
Outside of sports journalism, I am an intern for the O’Brien Fellowship for Public Service Journalism, which allows me to work closely with Erin Jordan of the Cedar Rapids Gazette to report on water quality issues affecting states in the Mississippi River Basin.
Coverage varies from a heart-touching feature on a player who overcame gun violence to wear a Marquette uniform to investigative stories on the treatment of a departing track athlete or a disappearing commodity in high school athletics.
In the classroom, I’m a journalism major at Marquette University with minors in Spanish and digital media graduating in May 2020.
(Video biography submitted for the 2018 Pete and Bonnie Axthelm Memorial Scholarship. As the scholarship winner, I introduced Bill Raftery at the Axthelm Memorial Lecture.)
