About Me

At my core, I am a storyteller. I love sharing new ideas and presenting them in creative ways. I’ve been creating films since I was 14, and I do not plan on slowing down. I also love a warm cup of coffee while watching a movie or reading a book. I also love food, and will never stop trying new places here in St. Louis. Plus, I know where to find the best burger in the city.

My SLU Experience   

There are a lot of great professors here at SLU, and I love the hands-on classes. Even when you’re not really sure what you’re trying to study, there are a lot of resources that can help you get there, just like they helped me. 

What I Love About St. Louis

From the Zoo at Forest Park, to the streets of Saint Charles, there’s a lot to do, and more importantly for me, to capture here in St. Louis. This city has a perfect blend of urban life, and suburban comfort, and as a creator, I love finding the hidden gems. 

How I Stay Connected to Other Billikens   

Being on campus for most of the day helps me meet a lot of new people. One of my favorite things to do is ask random students on campus if they want their photo taken, or if they want to be part of my videos.

Campus Favorites 

First things first, I LOVE the food on campus. Lunch at the business school cafe is a highlight of my day. Secondly, I love the hundreds of indoor and outdoor study spots. Finally, I love fall at SLU. The orange leaves flying around the clock tower and the water fountains are just a great sight.

Advice for Your College Search During COVID-19

I’d say no matter what college you end up attending, just make sure it feels like home to you. Whether you commute to it, live on campus or even spend your time in your dorm during classes, it’s important to remember that this is a second home for you.
