About Me.

Rather than read self-help books, I better myself by listening to and writing about music. To help me improve as a writer, and a voice, I am a student at Marshall University studying journalism.

I currently serve as the online manager for The Parthenon, Marshall's student newspaper.

For three years I served at 88.1 WMUL-FM, Marshall's student radio station, including a lengthy term as music director where I helped give exposure to a growing local music scene and helped tell artists' stories through interviews and in-studio performances.

I've interned for West Virginia Public Broadcasting and NPR Music's Mountain Stage

My writing has been featured in the Charleston Gazette, The Herald-Dispatch, Hooting and Howling Magazine, The Parthenon and WMUL's music staff Tumblr.
