Senior / Digital/Print Journalism

I am currently a Senior at Penn State University in the Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications majoring in Digital/Print Journalism. I am a member of CommRadio, Penn State’s student-run radio station. My responsibilities include writing articles, hosting a radio talk show, beat writing/broadcasting live sports events and participating in podcasts about various sports.

I have also interned in marketing content roles, as I have interned for WSC Sports, the leader is AI Automation for sports highlights, and The Verdi Group.
