I’ve always loved stories; reading them, telling them, hearing them, and watching them. Stories bond people, allow understanding across borders and cultures, and help us learn from the experiences of others.

As a journalism major at the University of Oregon, pursuing minors in political science and film studies, I’m interested in telling other people’s stories, as well as my own. I spend a lot of my time trying to turn thoughts and sentiments into letters and words, and this is the place I’ve chosen to share what I come up with.
