AT WORK

I've spent the last 10+ years of my life in creative spaces bringing a multidisciplinary touch to every project. From collaborating with entrepreneurs at Nike Valiant Labs to painting live at Los Dells Festival, I've picked up everything from a stylus to a paintbrush. I'm driven by learning. That, and the belief in how a multidisciplinary background paves paths toward enhanced creativity, human connection, and innovation. Here are some of the skills I've been blessed to share with others: 

Bringing Visions to Life

Animation, Art Direction, Branding & Marketing, Design Thinking, Entrepreneurship, Illustration, Painting, Videography, Web Design

Connecting and Sharing 

Public Speaking, Workshop Creation + Facilitation, Online Course Creation

IN LIFE

To me, life is an interconnected experience enriched by the people I love, the people I meet, and the people I learn from.

 

In 6th grade, I watched the film Slumdog Millionaire. As a girl who grew up in Aurora, Oregon – a rural town of less than 900 people – I was mesmerized by the setting of the film: India. Lush cultural imagery and underrepresented social issues flooded the screen. The film depicted a world so different from my own, yet as the daughter of Mexican immigrants, I easily connected with the themes of resilience and love. I have spent my following years with an interest in creating solutions to global issues and revealing the connectedness of the human experience.
