I was born in New Bedford in 1993 and am a graduate from Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech. I currently live in New Bedford and study political science and criminal justice at UMass Dartmouth. I am one of our WBSM newsroom reporters, gathering the news around town and reporting it to you. I have a strong passion for finding out the facts and learning new things. When I’m not covering the news, I love following sports. I’m an avid Red Sox and Bruins fan and always enjoy talking sports.
