About Me

Artist, Thinker, Creative Doer

I am a digital producer with Spectrum News.

I was the kid who lied about my age in the 2000s so I could get on social media web sites before Facebook existed and became a trend.

As an adult, I stopped lying about my age and became a digital journalist. I started as a newspaper reporter but transitioned to the production side of things after going for a masters degree in digital media.

I'm a life-long Texan, but I split my time between Austin and Knoxville, TN. I'm currently looking for a job in Nashville, TN.
