Who I Am
I didn't always want to be a journalist.

When I came to the University of Florida, I was determined that I would major in physics and possibly nuclear engineering. I took the university's Intro to Journalism course as an elective, simply because I had always liked to write. That semester changed my life.

Seeing the impact that quality journalism could have on the world and the individual enthralled me. I wanted to open people's eyes, expand their horizons and change their lives. I switched my major to journalism after only a few weeks of class.

After my first semester at UF I decided that I wanted more out of my college years than just academics. I joined the Kappa Sigma Fraternity during the spring semester of 2010.

Brothers of Kappa Sigm with Alumni
I love my fraternity. No where else in the world have I come across such versatile, talented and sincere young men than in the halls of the Kappa Sigma fraternity house. Some students see fraternity men only as wild party animals, and believe me we do party, but there is so much more to a fraternity than simply an abundant social calendar.

My fraternity brothers are people I can trust on, alumni are always willing to lend a hand when it comes to finding a career, and the fraternity has made me a better leader and team player.

Athletically, I'm a bit of a wild card. I ran cross country throughout high school and still run distance frequently. After I came to UF, I started gaining an interest in weight lifting and other forms of exercise. I'm happy to say that I am currently earning my personal trainer certification.

So who am I?

To different people, I'm many different things. To some I'm a leader, others a brother, but to everyone, I'm a friend.
