From a career in web development to managing creative digital teams, I have helped major clients tackle and solve some of their most complex digital problems. I bring a unique blend of both right-brain (creativity) and left-brain (analytical) thinking across industries from fashion to finance and low-tech to high-tech fields. Most recently, I traveled the world to study meditation in over six countries to better understand myself and the world around me to better understand mindfulness. I am currently focused on democratizing access to mindfulness, meditation, and design for our marginalized communities. You can view my current and past projects in my work.

Accessibility into the design industry is an important cause for me and I founded QTBIPOC Design (stands for queer, trans, Black, Indigenous, people of color design) that democratizes access to design education, mentorship, and networking opportunities for LGBTQ+ designers of color.
