Thanks for visiting my personal website. I have lived all over the country and now find myself in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After several years back in Indy, I made the move to work in the healthcare communications industry. Currently, I am the New Media and Community Relations Specialist at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital. I’m an adjunct professor for the Indiana University School of Journalism and PR at IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis) and for the School of Communications at Grand Valley State University. I teach in-person and online classes that deal with public relations and digital media.

Creator of DoItIndy “Top 5 Urban Events” Show: I’m also a founding member of the DoItIndy crew. The crew looks for the best “urban” events each week within the 465 loop of Indianapolis. The show mediums consist of video, tv and radio in Indy.
