Hey! I’m Sydney

A graduating senior at Loyola University Chicago looking for an entry level creative opportunity.

I love storytelling, and I love people because they are filled with stories. I have been to 24 countries and counting, trying to experience as much as possible. Whenever I have time, I bake (or fail to bake) things I saw on The Great British Baking Show, or watch movies – Wes Anderson is my recent interest. I also draw, paint, listen to bands I think make me cooler, and chew fat, but mostly I write. I write about things I like and people I admire, and I share it here!

Thanks for hangin’ out with me!
