It all started when...

I wrote in my high school journal that I hoped to graduate and go to Rutgers University to major in Journalism. From that point on I've been fortunate to work and intern with great companies. I've interned for Complex Magazine, Food Network, PBS and The Steve Harvey Morning Show. I've worked for Starbucks, NBC News, Cotton + Rubber and currently Apple.
