Geez, at the end of the summer why does it always feel like August came right after May? However fast the summer flew by, the experiences I had were, to me, nothing short of spectacular. Here are a couple of my highlights: This year was my first year at USC Racing’s competition in Lincoln, NE. We had a 27-hour car …

Why USC You Ask

Markus Markus, Uncategorized, Why USC, Why USC 2014 Leave a Comment

Hey all! I still remember being a senior in high school trying to juggle sports, school work, and college applications.  It is a time of stress, but anxiety to learn where you will be taking your talents next year.  There are so many stories of the perfect college fit, the ideal major, or myths about how to get into colleges. …

Hey everyone! I hope you have had another productive and fun-filled week! The very entertaining Grammy Awards just passed last weekend and I was lucky enough to see Macklemore live in concert just three days prior to the big event.

One of my favorite places in Los Angeles is the Orpheum Theatre! For the last few years, I’ve been a pretty frequent concert goer, and I love finding new places to see my favorite artists live.
