Interests

I am interested in gaining knowledge, museum collections, educating the public, connecting with people all over the world, social media, blogging, networking, fashion, and photography.

My dream job would be working for a brand I truly admire in a social media capacity. I love interfacing with the public via social media and am always honing my skills.
