News Philosophy

My news philosophy is, being a voice for the voiceless. Everyone has a story to share and it’s my job to make sure it gets told fairly and accurately. I want to be a reliable source that people come to in their times of need. No story is ever too big or too small. Everyone’s voice matters.

Hobbies, Interests & Community Service

In my free time I like to play basketball, hang out with my family and help my fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha as much as possible.

Education

Old Dominion University ‘12
