Editor, Designer, Writer
Howdy!
I'm a junior at Michigan State University double majoring in professional writing and linguistics with a minor in graphic design. When I'm not poring over a piece of writing, I like to create things with my 3D-printing pen, go to concerts, and pretend I'm good at rock climbing.
