CV

Over the past few years I have acquired a nickname as an “exploress”, an ambitious world traveler with a passionate interest in economic development, anthropology and design paired with a constant desire to be outdoors. I have developed a strong sense of adaptability and interpersonal relationships through traveling experience and volunteer work both domestically and internationally. Recently my creativity has been put to use in my freelance photography, videography, and graphic design work. My aspirations are to be a multimedia storyteller for the marginalized and without a voice in this 21st century
