I have built and grown communities for more than fifteen years. I excel at crafting creative, out-of-the-box ideas, and do my best work when I can collaborate with a team to bring those ideas to life. When not at work, I nurture my own communities. I GM and perform in TTRPG campaigns, create cosplay outfits, attend conventions, and am forever working on my living shiny Pokédex. Ultimately, I am a communicator striving to make my favorite spaces more open and welcoming to everyone.
Early in my career, I wandered across numerous industries, learning all I could and making connections. I spent time as a working artist, a comic book colorist, a production assistant and logger for a reality TV show, and more!
My recent experience includes DeviantArt, Red Bull Gaming, Avalanche Studios Group, and gaming journalism. I've been a panelist at San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic Con, Anime Expo, and have given a number of talks on fandom and how to build communities.
