About Me

I am passionate about building communities and helping others along their personal, creative, and professional journeys.  

My passions currently manifest themselves through speaking on the power of empathy to promote and build inclusive communities and also as a tech policy advisor that helps product teams design products with user's privacy needs and trust in mind.
