San Francisco, CA

Welcome! California born girl here, raised in an LA suberb. I moved to San Francisco to complete a Master's degree and fell head-over-heals in love with the city. After grad school, I ventured to Chicago for a 2+ year assignement as the Project Director for a national research project with Northwestern University. Once the project finished I moved back to the Bay Area to get my feet wet in the start-up world. I'm currently working on a second masters degree in Media Design (#olderthanIlook) and was most recently the community manager-slash-marketing manager for a new socail experience discovery app called HeyLets.

On my spare time I travel, create, dance, and enjoy all the perks of being thirty something in this beautiful city (#toldyou). But that's not all...

Armed with a passion for digital storytelling and a strong desire to help change the world, I began making short documentaries for health and social justice. Check out my award-winning directorial debut here: (Sex)abled:Disability Uncensored . This 14 minute film explores the sexual lives of some incredible UC Berkeley students, and comedian Josh Blue, The film is featured in classrooms, hospitals, conferences, support groups, and houses around the world.
