Creative spaces that combine art, music, technology, culinary, and interactive design excite me. I thrive in work cultures that value hard work, learning and development opportunities, and integrity.

I love working in entertainment because I always learn something new and find passion in the connections built between industries.

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