I am a young professional pursuing a multi-faceted career in digital marketing, content creation, and editorial services. I have experience in E-commerce copywriting, social media marketing, PR coordination, and video content creation.

My passion for covering professional, collegiate, and scholastic sports stems from my experience as a collegiate athlete and English student while at Dickinson College. For the past two years, I have worked for The Morning Call (The Lehigh Valley's largest news provider) as an editorial assistant and web producer.

My expertise is in the NFL, NCAA Football, NBA, and MLB. I perform extensive research and analysis to pursue new leads or angles on any breaking news, sports theories, or rumors. Most recently, my work has been the coverage of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Additionally, I freelance for the Lehigh Valley Press. I cover the Salisbury and East Penn areas.
