How to Prioritize Your Life

It’s been a hot minute since I posted anything here on the blog, and I’ve been really sad about this. But now I’m back on a new day with some thoughts on how to remedy this! My big problem during the last month and half was that I felt like all my life priorities had... Continue Reading →

My Life: One Year Later

This time last year I opened Gmail to find a truly mind blowing arrival. An email from the YouTube staff letting me know that I had been chosen for YouTube NextUp NY’s inaugural class.

Starting a New Job, Starting a New Life

Changing my life has been a big theme in 2016. Well...I feel like it was a theme in 2015 too, but a somewhat failed one.
