I'm currently living in my native Los Angeles pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts in Design at Art Center College of Design. My undergrad studies were in cultural anthropology and graphic design. I have an academic interest in tourism and how people experience cultures and places. I strongly believe cross-cultural exchanges, whether local or global, increase one’s capacity to empathize, support, collaborate, and learn. For many years I have worked as a freelance graphic designer and photographer.
Since 2000 I have had a goal to visit all the U.S. state capitals (35 down). I attribute my love for cooking to growing up watching the Food Network. Sometimes I do card tricks. I'm an only child. Orange and blue are my favorite colors.
