I am passionate about the intersectionality between industries, and the power of creatives to tell powerful and change affecting stories. Creative spaces that combine arts, music, technology, culinary, and interactive design excite me. 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.

In Travis County, volunteers serve as the guardian ad litem (GAL), an official representative in a Child Protective Services (CPS) case entitled to access information about the child’s situation and required to make reports to the court in the child’s best interest.
