This is not meant to be an exhaustive list of everything I've done, but I hope it gives a look into my interests and experience in a variety of fields.
There are a few specific points I hope you take away from my CV. In 2019, I served as a reporting intern with WFYI News Radio in Indianapolis. WFYI is one of the largest National Public Radio affiliates in the midwest. As an intern in that office, I learned the value of local reporting. I witnessed the power of city government and the policies its leadership implements. It was an invaluable lesson.
I've placed a high value on internships. During the summer of 2021, I worked as a public affairs intern with the Government Accountability Office. The GAO is a government agency with an active public affairs division, and it was an extraordinary opportunity.
I am a graduate of Park Tudor School's class of 2020. I took an advanced set of courses at the school and was subsequently awarded the Frank Meek Memorial Award, the highest honour the school gives to a student.
In Fall 2020, I entered Indiana University to study journalism, political science, and economics. I'm a member of the prestigious Ernie Pyle Scholars cohort and a student in the honors college.
Most recently, I edited for IU's student newspaper. Once a reporter covering city government and politics, I went on to serve as a Managing Editor, managing a very large staff across multiple divisions.
