ABOUT ME

Well hello there! Welcome and thank you for visiting my webpage. Here, you'll hopefully learn a little bit about me - who I am, what I do and why I do it.

I am incredibly blessed to have been born and raised in sunny Southern California, and because of this, I have a strong affinity to the beach, a distaste for the 405 Freeway, and a constant need for Mexican food. I've always had a passion for words and their power to make sense of the world. I have a penchant for learning new things, and I plan on doing so for the rest of my life.

WHAT I DO

I am currently finishing my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and I am also pursuing a minor in Professional Writing. I just finished working as a Content Marketing and Original Research Intern at Graphiq, a data company in Summerland, California.

My main passion in life involves helping others, and after I graduate, I will be doing so in the role of an on-campus missionary for FOCUS (the Fellowship of Catholic University Students). I am excited to begin, and I plan on chronicling my experiences and the lessons they teach me on my blog. Stay tuned!

BUSINESS PROPOSAL

Spring 2016

I designed this presentation for my "Writing for Public Speaking" class. Although it may not make complete sense without the presenter, I worked very hard on the slide design and layout, and I'm proud of the end result!

FILM CRITIQUE - MASTER OF NONE

Winter 2016

This is a piece I wrote for my "Writing About Film" class. It was one of my all-time favorite classes, and because this was my first critique, it was particularly fun to write.

FILM ANALYSIS - PHOENIX

Winter 2016

Written for my "Writing About Film" class, this writing sample is an analysis of a German film titled "Phoenix." I highly recommend the film; this piece I wrote might just convince you to watch it.

STUDYING ABROAD

Fall 2015

I used to maintain a blog about my travels throughout Europe while I was studying abroad, but unfortunately, my posts have since been deleted from my old website! Thankfully, you can still have a look at some of the pictures I took while I was traveling and having the time of my life. Enjoy!

FOOD TRADITIONS - THE EUCHARIST

I wrote this essay while I was studying abroad in Florence, Italy. It was intended for a class called "History and Culture of Food in Italy." If you're curious about how the institution of the Eucharist has shaped food culture, read on!
