I graduated from Washburn University in 2017 with a bachelor's degree in mass media with an emphasis in contemporary journalism and a minor in history. While at Washburn, I served in various capacities for the Washburn Review, including as a writer and managing editor where I led the team to produce our weekly printed edition, ensuring deadlines were met and quality was maintained. Around the same time, I started writing for SpaceFlight Insider and eventually served as its managing editor where I helped grow the website's traffic from under 120K to roughly 300K monthly viewers. I am currently creating content about the International Space Station and Artemis Moon program for Orbital Velocity. While I started my professional journey as a writer, Orbital Velocity is pushing me to acquire all sorts of new skills, including video editing, graphic design, visual storytelling, animation, and so much more!
