I’m currently pursuing a master’s in media at The New School. I intend to focus on documentary film and media as a tool for social change, particularly in relation to environmental sustainability. I co-host an environmental storytelling podcast called World Is Burning with my friend Elise Nye.
I am a returned youth development volunteer following the evacuation of the Peace Corps from Morocco in March 2020.
I graduated from Belmont University in May 2017 with a B.B.A. in Music Business and a minor in Writing.
While in school I was an editorial intern at Larry King Now in Los Angeles and Cultureshock Media in London, a booking assistant for independent artist and author LynnMarie Rink in Nashville, and a script coordinator for events like the 2016 AT&T CMA Red Carpet and CMT Crossroads. I also completed my creative thesis, a zine-inspired collection of essays called Teach Me How to Sew. Before that I was a salad girl in an Italian restaurant for three years. I will never fully escape the service industry and as such, always tip above 20%.
