I am a visual designer and equity strategist. Powered by laughter, kindness, and the idea we can actualize an abundant and equitable world, I design experiences with the not so radical idea there is space for everyone.

My approach to creative work imagines playful and transformative experiences informed by asking “what story is being told?”, and “who benefits the most?”. My methodology fuses culturally relevant insights with a deep commitment to leave future generations with a world they deserve. I do this by facilitating world-building workshops and supporting clients in reimagining their mission, products and front facing services.

I am also a lifelong educator. I’ve taught English classes as a Fulbright scholar in Panama, poetry writing workshops for teen girls in the Bronx and guided nervous parents through the birth process online. As a result, I have become a better co-learner with the ability to motivate and build consensus with those around me. My praxis took root within organizations like StoryCorps and Tribeca Film Institute, where I led digital archiving initiatives throughout the country and supported youth centered filmmaking programs in NYC. My work as a birth doula, supporting over 100 families through birth and postpartum, was a natural step towards future-visioning.

I am currently a Creative Producer at DOTDOT Studios and an Adjunct Faculty member at Parsons School of Design in the Design & Technology department. This upcoming fall I will be completing a postdoctoral fellowship at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, where I’ll be researching the complex experiences of Black women and calling into question the systems that profit off of the in/visibility of Black feminine aesthetic and labor.

I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and Studio Arts from Pomona College and live in Brooklyn, NY with my son.
