Cover Girls

Meet the Filmmaker

I am a senior at UW double majoring in journalism and French with certificates in digital studies, digital cinema production, and sports communication. After graduation, I am looking to start a career in documentary filmmaking with an emphasis on sports media. Aside from school, I enjoy biking, listening to podcasts and watching Wisconsin sports.
