Who I Am

paintingBorn and raised in Buffalo, NY, I’m a big fan of pizza and wings, embracing all four seasons, and cheering on hopeless football teams (#gobills). I love family and staying close to home, but I’m an adventurer at heart and hope to one day travel the world.

Ever since I was little, I’ve loved showing my creative side. Whether it be the hours I’d spend fancying up a pop-up birthday card, creating my own magazine, or making my own crazy lyrics to pop songs, it felt like there was no limit to my 10-year-old imagination.

Not only does my creative mind run through my words and my designs, I have also, for as long as I can remember, been in love with music. After dabbling with a variety of instruments from clarinet to piano, I can now most often be found rocking out on my tenor saxophone. As president of our jazz band on campus, I have loved being able to go through college with a bunch of crazy music nerds like myself. Whether it be playing or singing, the only time where my brain might not be humming is while I’m sleeping (and even then I’m not so sure).

I’m beyond thankful that I have found a career choice that lets me bring my little-kid imagination into a professional setting. Throughout my years so far, I’ve loved being able to combine my passions for writing, art, music, and leadership to help me develop as the person writing you this today.
