I graduated from the University of Miami two years ago. Since then I have been dedicating my time to travelling as much as possible and discovering who I am through creative expression. I have found a passion for blogging and photography and am looking to merge the two. I have limited professional experience in the writing and photography fields but I have a natural talent for the two and a burning passion that leads me to learn more about these topics everyday. Below, I have posted my resume to give a little background about my work and educational experience. Please message me with any questions, comments or concerns.
