I am born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and I graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, receiving a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism with an emphasis in Sports Journalism. After college, I worked as a sports reporter at the London Olympics followed by several other jobs working in a multimedia capacity. In an effort to diversify my professional background, I lateraled into the tech industry focusing on business development, user experience, and customer relations. In short, my entire career has been focused on people — learning from them and understanding how to develop stories and technology around their habits and aspirations.
