As a StoryTerrace writer, Adrian interviews customers and turns their life stories into books. Get to know her better by reading her autobiographical anecdote below
During the second grade, Adrian took her first step towards a life in journalism by tying a string around her Kodak Instant camera, sticking a notebook in her back pocket, and cruising the streets in the backseat of her mother’s 1982 Buick Skylark, looking for the latest sensation to hit the bedroom community of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
A year later, she founded her own newspaper, The Brune Times, as an outlet to give the readers of her community “all the news fit to print.” It folded in 1985, unfortunately, due to a burgeoning interest in both soccer and tennis, which took Adrian through her high school and college years.
She found her love of journalism again, however, a decade later in her Intro to Magazine writing class and luckily, averted a career as a lawyer, the family business. Since then, Adrian has added photography and videography to her repertoire of media interests. But she also still regularly picks up a tennis racquet for a match on the courts of New York, followed by her Nikon D3000 to photograph the life surrounding them.
