I am a senior at the University of Texas at Austin, pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Radio-Television-Film, and a minor in Business Foundations. I am interested in producing feature films primarily, but I am also interested in writing screenplays and short stories. I have a podcast called Movie Nights With My Ex with my actual ex-boyfriend where we share film opinions and fight over the TV remote at our shared living space. My other interests include vintage fashion, reading any and all Joan Didion, Octavia E. Butler, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie novels, and true crime podcasts! more...
