About: Community Engagement Specialist for the Rapidian.
After being raised in a small rural town just outside of Lansing, I moved to the Grand Rapids Area to attend college, and have been here ever since. During college, I focused a lot of my attention on film and video, communication, media literacy, and media ecology. Prior to working with the Rapidian, I have had the pleasure of working on movies, television shows, and on other media platforms. I love all things Michigan, will gladly choose a Founders Oatmeal Stout over any other beer, and challenge you to find a better place to be than Autumn in Michigan.
