About Me

I am a visual storyteller with ten years of professional experience, from television news and print, to online journalism and commercial production. This career provides countless opportunities to be exposed to a variety of personalities, cultures, and values that characterize my community.  As visual communicators, we bear a delicate responsibility of sharing the most intimate sides of humanity, while honoring every story to avoid misrepresenting or colonizing a narrative.  I hope to carry this duty forward using actions rooted in facilitating empathy, inclusion, understanding, and liberation.

I grew up in Littleton and Lakewood, Colorado, where most of my family resides.  I graduated from Colorado State University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Technical Journalism.  I have returned to CSU and Fort Collins to support my partner's journey in veterinary medicine.  In 2022, I completed my Master of Science degree in Journalism and Media Communication.  My areas of study include narrative, filmmaking, and digital storytelling.  Now, I work as a video storyteller and social and digital media strategist for CSU. 

Some of my favorite story topics include social impact storytelling, environment, food, natural resources, the arts, and covering the LGBTQIA+ and/or APIDA community. I am also particularly passionate about documentary filmmaking and decolonizing some if its harmful practices and norms. I hope to work with more communities that are unfamiliar to me, who challenge my existing beliefs, or cultivate new ways of thinking. Fear of the unknown often divides us, and I hope to share my exposures with others to help make some of the unfamiliar feel more familiar.  Let's connect, I hope to learn from you.
