What I'm Up To

I'm an Instructional Designer with the terrific team at Maestro and I serve as the Treasurer on the Board of the Vine Neighborhood Association in the city of Kalamazoo, Michigan. 

Check out my music blog Bandcamp 10, where I challenge myself to spend $10 per month on independent music in lieu of a music streaming subscription.

In 2017 I assisted the fine folks at Handmade Kalamazoo with Local Handprint, a social media campaign to highlight small businesses that give back to the community. Stay tuned for updates on that project!

If I'm not writing or organizing workshops in Vine, you can probably find me enjoying local Kalamazoo music or tending my little front porch garden.

Education

I graduated from Kalamazoo College in 2017, where I studied journalism, Spanish language & literature, and media studies. 

I wrote for various on-campus publications while I pursued my bachelor's degree, including the College's newspaper The Index, Naked Music & Culture Magazine, and our chapter of the Odyssey Online.

I completed my Senior Individualized Project (undergraduate thesis) in print journalism; I wrote a series of profiles and articles about the Vine neighborhood in Kalamazoo, where I live. One piece was published in Kalamazoo College's literary journal, The Cauldron, and another was published in the Vine Line, the Vine neighborhood's monthly newsletter.
