About Me

Whether radio, television, digital or print, I own a versatile journalism repertoire that allows me to contribute to a wide variety of media companies across all stages of the production process.

I currently hold two jobs while finishing the fourth year of my undergraduate degree in Media Studies at the University of British Columbia. In my position at Horrow Sports Ventures, I write sports business, sports technology, and sports philanthropy content for major television and radio networks including NBC Sports Washington, Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg Radio, and Fox Sports. Additionally, I am in charge of the company’s social media accounts.

Meanwhile, my broadcast position at CiTR 101.9 FM has provided me three years of experience as a Canada West TV play-by-play sportscaster for UBC's varsity basketball, volleyball, and baseball teams. On non-game days, I script write, broadcast, and produce a weekly sports talk show on CiTR 101.9 FM called Thunderbird Eye.

I am an experienced journalist who loves sports, politics, arts, culture, and breaking news. I am fascinated by the world's narratives and am a truth-seeker and storyteller.
