As a passionate environmentalist, nothing makes me happier than seeing others live in harmony with the world around them.
I believe in a clean, just environment for all. This has led me to the life goal of presenting science and sustainability
initiatives in clear, compelling, and creative ways to engage others regardless of their respective fields. With the permeation
of social media and online outlets, I enjoy creating digital stories via writing, graphics, or any other new medium I can explore.
Feel free to look around or reach out, I'd love to hear from you!
From a young age, writing has been my go-to form of self-expression. I enjoy taking time to find the perfect combination of words to touch the hearts of my audience, and I find this tactic especially useful in efficiently communicating environmental matters. Below are a few of my published examples.

As technology permeates our society, we must learn to work with the facets that accompany it. I love creating stories with various types of media intertwined — audio, videos, photography, graphs, etc. Exploring new multimedia platforms is one of my favorite hobbies, and I am always looking to learn something new.
Here you will find a collection of some of the work I have created using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
My design style is heavily influenced by my mom, an artist and graphic designer whose work I admired throughout my childhood. Her art guided my eye for design, and ultimately led me to the Multimedia track of the Writing minor, where I was lucky enough to get formal training in Adobe Creative Suite.

UC Santa Barbara
BACHELOR OF ARTS 2013 - 2017

UCSB offered incredible opportunities, and I was lucky enough to study abroad in both New Zealand and Thailand, participate in a relief trip after the Colorado floods, and volunteer all 4 years in environmental education programs for local elementary schools.
"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
"It takes generosity to discover the whole through others. If you realize you are only a violin, you can open yourself up to the world by playing your role in the concert."
"Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply."
