My urge to create stories, or to tell existing ones with a new perspective, is a persistent yet welcome force. There are days in which I struggle to contain the number of characters, settings, dialogues, and narratives in my mind — and there are days where I have none, though these days are few. These fragmented elements will never be cohesive, but what excites me the most is figuring out which I can combine to create truly impactful work.

Most of my recent work is rooted in various non-profits with focuses on conservation and education. When there is a message or mission behind my work that resonates with me, that is when I can engage audiences most effectively.
