Greetings! I hail from Murrieta, California, a desert suburb an hour north of San Diego. I love all things movies and have a particular obsession with neo-noir films, Star Wars and The Muppets. I love film because it’s the perfect outlet to express your feelings and admirations while escaping, or indulging yourself in a brand new world. Furthermore, I love movies that force you to think about morality, humanity or philosophy because art should be equally challenging as it is entertaining. Along with the Chimes, I also contribute to Film School Rejects, an online film and entertainment publication, and have certified film reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.

More than film, I’m passionate about passionate people and am excited to tell stories about talented, artistic students on campus. The Chimes has certainly helped me find my voice as a writer and as I enter my senior year, I’m excited to delve deeper into the world of journalism and storytelling. If you disagree with any of my hot takes on movies, or if you just want to talk about pop culture, art or politics, feel free to take me out to coffee!
