I'm a student journalist looking to tell stories with objectivity and fairness while growing closer to my community and illuminating those in the shadows.

As a journalism student at Emerson College, I am involved with WEBN, the school's TV station, as well as Emerson Channel Sports and as a staff writer for the Berkeley Beacon (newspaper). I am also a part of Emerson's Society of Professional Journalists chapter.

Before Emerson, I was heavily involved with my high school's newspaper as a varsity basketball beat writer (2018-2020, 2021-2022), sports editor (2020-21) and the Online Managing Editor (2021-22). I was also a play-by-play and color commentator for the school's Broadcast Club all four years, earning the John Malloy Broadcast Award as a senior.

On Medium, I mostly write sports and news articles for my publication "Boundless & Ballin'", as well as "Letters From a Sports Fan" and "The Press Box", but have ventured into telling more personal stories on my Substack blog, The Voice of Truth. I also host a sports podcast called "The Boundless & Ballin' Podcast" on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts.

Outside of college, I also write for Last Word on Hoops and YRMedia, and I am the social media manager for PerThirtySix, a sports site focused on data visualization.

I get my writing inspiration from articles, podcasts, and social media. Outside of writing, I also enjoy playing basketball, watching movies & documentaries, and reading novels & nonfiction stories. Some of my favorite authors include Stephen R. Covey, Malcolm Gladwell, Joan Didion and Walter Cronkite.

Aside from my Twitter, you can also find me on Instagram, LinkedIn, and check out my personal portfolio.
