About Me

During my second year of college I enrolled in a Latin American Literature course. Reading some of the most influential authors in South and Central America inspired me. Each page brought me into the life of someone with a completely different culture. It felt like I had left my small town and traveled across the world. I knew that I wanted to bring that same feeling I got from reading, to others. 

My degree in Journalism and Communication compliment my passion. My experience with programs like Adobe Photoshop and iMovie allow me to create media in multiple forms. Today, the way we receive and view content is changing. Because I am not only a creator of content, I am a viewer, I understand the necessity of simple, easy to access, mobile friendly content.
