Before to moving to San Francisco, I was as a digital community strategist at the U.S. Department of State, and I was instrumental in the production and execution of two National Geographic expeditions – one about strengthening communities on the Tibetan Plateau, and one on educating people about water. I have a background in product strategy, audience and user research, and content design.
Studying French at the University of Michigan sparked my interest in learning about different languages, social infrastructures and mediums of communication – which ultimately lead me to get my master’s degree in Communication, Culture and Technology at Georgetown. My passion for Internet standards, technological evolution, and product design motivated me to roll up my sleeves and become a software engineering fellow at Hackbright Academy.
Outside of my time coding, I enjoy sailing (preferably on the Great Lakes), traveling to nature-rich destinations, hiking and doodling in my trusty moleskin sketchbook.
