The Basics

I have a M.A. and B.A. in International Affairs. My concentrations were in security studies and religion, respectively. My undergraduate research project was on film, civic action, and media in India. My graduate group capstone focused on how new media might be used to combat youth unemployment in South Africa. I am interested in media analysis, strategic communications, and multidisciplinary writing.

Along with my broad range of interests and varied international experiences, I have proven my reliability in academia and in the workplace. I am entrusted with crucial client projects, provide leadership with limited resources, and have had the opportunity to work on a group research capstone for nine months. I adapt well in the modern, tumultuous, global workplace.

My goals for of 2018 includes finishing my audio drama, getting representation for my father’s survivor memoir, and visiting Hawaii.
