As a life-long student at heart, an anthropologist by nature, a natural storyteller and connector, I love learning from different people, experiences and places. I am fascinated by cross-cultural insights, shared experiences, interactive media, social innovation catalyzed by social networks and how these things can create community between different groups of people and facilitate learning and exchange within these groups.
(P.S.: ...I also love purple potatoes.)
Research & Development. Social Innovation. Global Health. Food & Culture. Interactive Media. Design Thinking. International Development. A Good Story.

Social Innovation, Interactive Media, Good Food, Good Writing, Food Memoirs, Travel, Culture. Global Health & Development, Design Thinking
With a background in World Literatures & Biology, I am passionate and inquisitive. I love innovation and ideas--especially ones that connect seemingly different disciplines--which is what drew me to this community of curious thinkers. I would love to be able to apply my interests, skills and experiences to the realm of food, public health, human services and global development. Ultimately--to work for a platform that allows me to engage with many mission-driven people, organizations and movements within the global community and assist them with research and development, outreach, design, iteration, connecting, engaging, and learning.
I am always scheming about new ideas and new ways to connect in the community. Please do connect if you have an idea, story, experience to share.
