I'm a Philly-bred, pasta-loving, proud-dog-owning person.  I also love alliteration. 

Growing up in the Philadelphia suburbs, I developed a great love of all things food, theatre, culture and writing. I try to incorporate my passions into everything that I do.

I was lucky enough to realize how much I loved journalism early in my life. I started writing for my school newspaper in middle school on a whim, and stuck with writing ever since. I knew going into college that I wanted to capture and share moments and information for the rest of my life, so I am lucky enough to have ended up in the perfect place for that at the Medill School of Journalism, Media and Integrated Marketing Communications.

Being a journalist is like having a pass to delve into the most interesting events, learn about the most novel and unique parts of society and share everything you’ve learned with anyone who reads it. I have had so many incredible opportunities by way of wearing a 'journalist' hat, and I have loved every minute of it. I've tasted dozens of mac & cheese creations at a festival that I covered, interviewed women in the food industry at the Sugar and Spice Summit, tried out all sorts of exercise classes and new eateries and have tested different virtual reality programs in Evanston. 

I want this platform to reflect who I am, so welcome to me!
