In 2009, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Connecticut College with a BA in both Film Studies and Italian. Since then, I’ve been busy wearing many hats:

  • 3 years as an account executive at CO OP, managing clients and vendors, project timelines and budgets. (i.e. lots of color-coded Excel and diplomatic emails for clients going through the branding process).

  • 1 year of marketing and operations at Moody Pet alongside its founder. (i.e. making cat videos, brainstorming dog toys, managing inventory, hawking Humunga Tongues at the Javits Center, studying every episode of Shark Tank in preparation for Moody Pet’s appearance).

  • 3.5 years of operations at Health Advocate, running the east coast biometric warehouse. (i.e. supervising all inventory logistics for medical supplies used at client health screenings across the eastern seaboard, including quality control, shipping & receiving, warehouse protocol, and vendor relations).

  • All the while, taking on freelance video production gigs for education clients like The George Washington University’s Alumni Travel Program and the International Scholar Laureate Program.

  • I was also releasing music and touring with Philly band tinmouth.

In 2019, I graduated with honors and an MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design. During my time in school, I took on the following:

  • 2018 Ms. Foundation for Women - Parsons Fellowship

    • Teamed with NAPAWF (National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum) to design a Congressional report on immigration as it relates to reproductive justice. Also created seven videos to accompany the Congressional report and local chapter workshops.

  • Designer at Minor Vices, where I worked on web projects for the NBA, IFC, and Lifetime.

  • Designer for author Honor Moore’s upcoming memoir: photo retouching and layouts for each chapter page.
