News Philosophy

My news philosophy is all about being a voice for the voiceless. Everyone has a story to tell and sometimes your voice and input need to be heard. That’s where I come in, to help share and shed light on topics of discussion all across Southwest Florida.

Hobbies, Interests & Community Service

In my free time, you can catch me going the gym, cooking or going on new adventures exploring what Southwest Florida has to offer.
