About me

I am currently a fourth-year honors student at the University of California Santa Barbara, pursuing a Communication B.A., Professional Writing Minor with a Multimedia Design focus, and Certificate of Business Law.

I see the goal of communication as far more than the successful transmission of information, and strive to create messages that are not simply read or heard, but truly experienced and connected with.
