Since dipping my toes into the waters of the craft at the age of 16, journalism has been my passion. When I joined my city's teen journalism program, I figured it would be a fun hobby; It quickly became much more. It's within my writing that I found my voice that had been stifled for so long. I've managed to review everything from video games to albums, conducted interviews with local playwrights and national best-selling authors, and wrote personal pieces about growing up as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community in the Southern parts of the United States — and all before turning 18!

I then started freelancing with a sci-fi/fantasy magazine from across the pond in the U.K. It's here that I began to focus on combining my passion of journalism and critiquing with my love of video games, which I found gelled together for me perfectly. After a short hiatus, I worked with a site focused on video games and tech, before deciding to turn my attention towards my unadulterated admiration of RPGs and moving to RPGFan, a site I've been a fan of since I was a kid.

I suffer from Cystic Fibrosis, anxiety, and type II bipolar disorder; Allow me to be the first to tell you that any illnesses and disabilities you suffer from don't have to stand in your way of realizing and accomplishing your dreams and passions. I promise that you can overcome what life has thrown at you and achieve your goals.

I welcome any and all feedback, so if you want to send me your thoughts on anything I've written, feel free to message me on the forums or shoot me an email!
