Dear Reader,

First and foremost, I get that a lot of people like to write these things in the third-person, and I’m not at all savvy to the rules of an ‘about me’ page, but I’ve always found the third-person to feel distant and not very personal, so I’m going to write about myself in the first-person–and I get it, nobody likes talking about themselves (myself included), but here I am, and here’s what I have to say.

I am a Long Beach transplant now residing in the South Bay Area of California. I am currently enrolled as a student at San Jose State University where I am studying business administration with a concentration in marketing and a minor in global leadership and innovation. A mouthful, I know. I like to document life as it happens, capturing the “wow” and magical moments in between, and hopefully that shows in my work.

Anyway, now that I’ve formally introduced myself, let’s get in touch, and let’s get to work!
