I'm originally from the borough that gets no love – Staten Island, N.Y. – but currently live in the Windy City. I earned a Bachelor's in Broadcast Journalism from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. And my arsenal of skills make me a multimedia communicator.

I aspire to be a writer, audio and video producer. Long-term, I hope to write and direct my own film or series in collaboration with a streaming service. But I'm still figuring it out.
For fun: I dance to Congolese music in my mirror, style my hair, watch YouTube videos, and eat all while perusing the comments.
