My story

I am the founder and CEO of RIZZARR, aka the Millennial Marketplace.™ Through RIZZARR, brands are able to find and work with Millennial content creators from across the world. Our content creators produce articles, photos, podcasts, and videos. I am also the founder of Millennials Change, an event series created to inspire Millennials to make a positive impact on the world.

I am passionate about creating life-changing experiences as well as using journalism and social media to positively transform lives. In fact, in addition to managing my company and its event series, I also host the RIZZARR video and podcast series, “The Ripple Effect of You.” I created this series to inspire and empower my generation to go after their dreams and to fulfill their God-given purpose.

how I got started

Before starting my journey in entrepreneurship, I was broadcast and digital journalist. I worked for NBC News, WBAL Radio, and USA TODAY. I graduated with honors from the University of Southern California, earning a B.A. in broadcast and digital journalism as well as minors in international relations and Spanish. Fun fact: I started my career at 14-years-old, as a host and producer at my high school television station. It broadcasted educational programs to those within my hometown.

What I love most about working in Southeast Michigan
