I was born and raised in the historical island of Galveston, Texas. After doing U.I.L Theatre at Ball High School, I moved to San Marcos, Texas to attend Texas State University to study Computer Information Systems. After my first year, I decided to change my major to Electronic Media after watching what my friends were studying versus what I was studying and I never looked back. I would later join the university radio station, KTSW 89.9, as a Sports and News reporter. From conducting post-game interviews with coaches to writing news stories, I got my first taste of what’s to come. I knew I was graduating early so I wanted to try as many things as I could while in college so I became the university mascot, Boko the Bobcat, which was an incredible experience. Afterward, I still wasn’t satisfied with my time in college yet so I decided to join the Texas State Athletics- ESPN+ department as a production assistant in my final college semester. I’m excited to start my career as an MMJ here in Victoria.

I love all things outdoors from hiking with my 2-year-old Aussie/Russell mix, jogging, and playing sports. I also love playing chess against anyone looking for a good match. You can usually find me cheering on my favorite teams, the San Francisco 49ers, and the San Antonio Spurs. If you see me around, don’t be afraid to say howdy!
