Born and raised in Nebraska, my parents have instilled in me the classic “Midwest Work Ethic”, along with a passion for learning that will never fade. I pride myself on being the first to arrive and the last to leave. Still, I enjoy making people laugh more than just about anything (it’s cheesy, I know).
I recently graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Bachelor of Journalism. I majored in Advertising & Public Relations with concentrations in Sociology, Psychology, and Philosophy. Consistently amongst the nation's best advertising programs, my time at the University afforded me the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the industry's most creative minds.
Despite my Nebraskan roots, I admittedly have a love affair with Thai food. However, it will remain just an affair as long as pizza is an accessible good. In my spare time, I’m likely watching some obscure, thought-provoking movie or (the opposite of that) playing Nintendo 64 with my friends. I also coach and play basketball. Historians believe I invented the no-look pass .
