I LIKE TO FOCUS ON THE LITTLE THINGS, BECAUSE EVENTUALLY THEY LEAD TO GREATER THINGS.

Autobiography

It’s safe to say that I’m a fairly passionate person. I take everything I do seriously, and I have a diverse range of interests. While I am passionate about more things compared to others – technology leading the pack in things that interest me the most – journalism has always been that "happy-medium" where all of my interests thrive and coexist together. That’s kind of where Notice comes into play. I’ve always wanted to invest the time into my own form of “technology,” and with Notice I have found that I can let my technological side flourish, while simultaneously communicating all of my other interests.
