In case it isn't obvious from this gig, I have a deep passion for writing. I'm super outgoing and love to talk to people, which makes this even better. I'm an Alabamian born and raised, and I JUST graduated from UA majoring in Journalism and Creative Media. I've been writing movie scripts since I was five, I've worked two years in print and digital journalism, and most recently I've been writing here. What I love most about this is getting to know T-Town inside and out, and serving as a voice in the community!
