Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I am an avid critical thinker. Currently a third-year student at UC Santa Barbara majoring in Communication and minoring in Professional Writing, I am passionate about the way that people interact with the various brands that make up the economic landscape. My interests span far and wide; I am not one to be boxed or categorized. My current fascination lies in digital media and the internet! I am big on personal values and hope to remain ever true to mine, particularly the one about doing good for others and for the world. Dream job (and by dream, I mean literally): pediatric surgeon/lawyer/high school AP Lang teacher/travel blogger/artist/influencer/actor A more realistic job aspiration: brand strategist

Interesting Factoid

I am content to stare at billowy clouds, starry skies, or any sort of skyline for hours upon end.
