About

photo credit Kenzi Everitt Photography

I love working in entertainment because I am passionate about the intersectionality between industries, and the power of creatives to tell powerful and change affecting stories. I thrive in work cultures that value hard work, learning and development opportunities, and integrity.

I enjoy travelling, learning about new cultures, eating, and cooking! I can be found enjoying nature, going to museums, and cuddling with my kitty.
