What surprised you the most about UNM?
I was really surprised at just how nice people are here in New Mexico as a whole. Not that people aren’t nice in the south where I’m from, but I just love the vibe and friendliness of New Mexicans.

What brought you to UNM?
I knew I wanted to do something film related, but L.A. and New York were too expensive. Breaking Bad is my favorite show of all time, and I thought the place that produced the greatest show ever might also have a pretty cool film program. They do, IFDM.

What are your favorite events around Albuquerque?
Is eating an event? If eating is an event, then eating would be my favorite event. I’d put New Mexican cuisine against anything else in the world. I also absolutely love snowboarding season, and the fact we’re just an hour away from some pretty good slopes is amazing.

What are your plans after college?
I really want to do something with film and/or writing. As of now I haven’t figured out if I want to go the documentarian/journalist route or the pure creative (try to make it in Hollywood) route.

So recently I had to purchase a new set of wheels due to my Hyundai Santa Fe slipping on black ice and sliding into a wall around a loop a few weeks ago. After weeks of searching high and low for something suitable, I finally have something to whip around Albuquerque. It’s a 2005 Ford Focus […]

Placed 3rd in Anderson’s Business Plan Competition

The Anderson Business Plan Competition is one of the coolest things UNM has to offer in my opinion. If you have a great idea, make a business plan, pitch it to investors, and if it’s good enough you’ll win some cash. It wasn’t the outcome my business partner and I expected…We had our eyes on […]

So after over a couple month hiatus, I am back writing for The Pack. The end of the semester swamped me, and then I went back to the swamp that is Florida for the entirety of the break, and I’ve been swamped yet again ever since this semester began. Ultimately, I’m just glad I haven’t […]
