I'm a senior print and Web journalism major attending Austin Peay State University and have been studying and working in the journalism field since my days on my high school student newspaper staff.

I've served on the APSU student publications staff from 2006 until 2009, where I worked as a staff writer, sports copy editor, columnist and news editor. My works have also been published in the Red Mud Review and the Chattanooga Times-Free Press. I also do work as a blogger, graphic designer, Web designer and spend my spare time salsa dancing, weightlifting and, well...writing.

Though writing is my most cherished hobby, I am nowhere to be found without a red pin and a style guide. I consider editing to be my trade, but most of all, being able to help bring out the potential in other aspiring writers is the exciting part about the job. As human beings, we need honest and direct feedback; being the person to "tell it like it is" is my pleasure.
