Pop Culture Junkie. Storyteller. Dreamer.

My desire in life is to unveil the extraordinary stories hidden within the beauty of everyday life.

I have been published in College Lifestyles Magazine, USA Today College Blog, The Celebrity Cafe,, and Veritas. Below is a list of clips from each of these publications. I hope you enjoy what you see and learn something new!
