My granny was the first person who taught me the power of storytelling. I remember countless days with her reciting to me the funniest and most outlandish tales about my childhood and my family. I never thought I'd grow up wanting to tell stories, too, but here I am.

When I'm not out finding stories, I like to entertain. Dinner parties and in-car lip sync Snapchats are some of my favorite ways to show the people in my life how much I care for them. I also moonlight as a florist, and help my family with our pumpkin and Christmas tree farm during busy season. 

But storytelling, especially through visuals, remains my passion. It's what I want to spend my life doing, and I want to continue learning to do it better.
