I am a graduate of Suffolk University. I received my Bachelors of Science in Journalism Degree on May 20th. For the last three years I have been writing for various publications for their entertainment sections. I started out with The Suffolk Voice, Suffolk University's online publication where I wrote movie reviews, local entertainment things to go to and interviewed artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas, Ross Lynch, Sabrina Carpenter, Shawn Mendes and more.

The biggest publication to date I have written for is CelebMix, which averages around 300,000 - 500,000 readers a month. I write many celebrity news articles for this as well as interview many artists such as Forever in Your Mind, The Vamps, New Hope Club, Maddie Poppe and more.
