Andrew’s Bio

Your major: Journalism and Digital Media

Your hometown: Layton

Where do you live now? Salt Lake

What are you passionate about? I’m passionate about concerts and specifically the music scene in Salt Lake which I think is growing quickly. I’ve loved being able to go back to concerts in these past couple months. Kilby Court is my favorite venue which is somewhere that up and coming local and touring artists play all the time. There’s nothing better than the experience of the concert especially at Kilby Court.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? My favorite class has probably been the intro to journalism class because it taught me so much about how to be a journalist which is a relatively new passion for me.

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? Matt Damon

Where do you see yourself in five years? It’s hard to say to exactly but hopefully I have a full time job that I’m passionate about.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Being able to fast forward, pause, and rewind life always seemed like a cool super power to me

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: I’m the assistant editor for the Globe!
