So I used to act in commercials...and now I write them. 

The only way I know how to say it is: I’m a creative Swiss Army Knife. I’m an advertising writer, a video director and choreographer, and an actor/dancer.

I believe collaboration is a skill, and boy, have I practiced it. I like to think I’m good at reading a room, setting a positive *vibe*, and working to bring out the best in every person on a team. To me, weaving together multiple ideas to create the best possible super creative outcome is a magical process.

I am passionate about equitable media representation and invested in telling diverse stories. It’s a big part of the reason I wanted to make ads in the first place. 

And this one time, I finished a Saturday New York Times crossword puzzle.
