Professional Experience

A well-established freelancer who has covered everything ranging from sports to entertainment. At the tender age of 20, I nailed my first cover story with Latin Trends Magazine as merely a contributor in college. When asked upon, I have covered numerous events on short notice and delivered highly quality stories for the likes of Pepsi, Complex, XXL, Dime Magazine, Vibe, MySpace, and more. In addition, I have a very extensive rolodex in the music industry that allows me to get interviews at the drop of a hat. If you need a story regarding an artist, I'm your writer. If you need an editorial, a transcription, or a feature, I'm also your writer!
