Why do you love Los Angeles?
The city is so vibrant and diverse, you can go from the beach to the mountains and the weather is always great!! There is much to explore and you have the opportunity to balance a fast paced urban city with the beauty of the outdoors. You can experience museums, shopping, surfing and skiing all in one day!!

What global experiences have you had in college?
I had the opportunity to spend my first semester freshman year abroad in Paris through USC’s program at the American University of Paris.  I attended the LINC program in Singapore my freshman year.  It was an amazing experience where I enjoyed traveling with my peers and touring companies, including: Rolls Royce, Singapore Airlines, LucasFilm and more!

What internship/employment opportunities have you taken advantage of at Marshall?
I have interned at Warner Bros. Records, Create Music Group, and Small Giant Records + Management. I also worked as a brand ambassador for SoulCycle.  My favorite part of networking through USC is meeting all of the alumni who are excited to engage and meet younger members of the Trojan Family.

Any of the upper division business law courses with Professor Kerry Fields.
