In May 2018, I graduated from California State University, Fresno with BA in Media, Communications and Journalism with an emphasis in Print Journalism. In 2016, I started writing for Fresno State’s student-run newspaper, The Collegian, as the book and music reviewer, eventually working my way up to becoming the paper’s Arts & Entertainment Editor.

During the course of my college career I have took a wide variety of writing courses. Some of the assignments I had were published in local newspapers. Below are links to all of my reviews (except of books, which you can find here) and stories, categorized by publication, then date (oldest to newest). You can also find links to pieces I wrote outside of school for other publications.
