I was born in Boulder, Colorado; grew up in the greater Chicago area (630 come at me); and moved to Fort Collins to go to school. Moving around has helped me appreciate how wonderful the Northern Colorado area really is. Everyone who lives here should know that they are blessed. Graduating from Colorado State University in December 2013 with a Communications major and a technology minor. Writing things for the web is a wonderful transition into what people call the 'real world.' I love music, interning at a radio station is probably a dream come true. My favorite fruit is watermelon. I have the travel bug. I believe that getting out into the world and experiencing it rids us of our prejudices and the negative connotations that we hear and grow up with. I am a big fan of Northern Colorado's brewing environment. Right now listening to music (all different kinds; rock, hip-hop, country, jazz, oldies) writing, working, hanging out with friends is life. It's a pretty good one.
