About Me:

Interests -

  • Sports have always been a major part of my life. I play soccer and run, but I enjoy watching just about any sport! I am an avid Steelers fan and practically bleed black and gold.
  • Music is another passion of mine. Though I enjoy many kinds of music, I especially enjoy jazz, hip/hop, and gospel.
  • I love to read, both novels and non-fiction books. I need more time in the day to get through my ever-increasing book list!

Education -

  • I grew up in Indiana, Pennsylvania and graduated from the Indiana Area Senior High School in 2006.
  • I studied Seconday Education/Social Studies at Grove City College and graduated magna cum laude in May 2010.
  • I plan to pursue a master's degree in the near future.
