About Me

Hi! I was born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia in a town called Powder Springs. After graduating high school I decided to attend the University of Pittsburgh for college. I quickly fell in love with Pittsburgh (and the city's love for french fries as a sandwich topping), and haven't looked back since. At Pitt I am majoring in Marketing with a Studio Arts minor in addition to a certificate in Digital Media. I plan to apply the skills I learn with my degree to a job in advertising upon graduation. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with friends and trying new restaurants. My passion for food has lead me to create a food Instagram. Follow me @PGHFood, I promise you won't regret it! (Unless you're dieting)
