    I am a Junior at UW-Stevens Point studying Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations. I'm the Online Editor of The Pointer. I write album reviews, listen to a lot of music, have a new found obsession with tea, and I like taking angsty pictures for my Instagram. I travel when I can and like to think I am a good photographer. Most times if you hear noise, its me singing down the hall. I'm an aspiring singer and artist. I am also a member of the Public Relations Student Society of America at UWSP as the Visual Promotions Chair. Follow my social media platforms to learn more about me and my work.
