I’m the Social Innovation Fellow at the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale University, where I build accelerators, intensives, workshops, and processes that support students in creating and contributing to innovative ventures, nonprofits, and projects that address pressing social issues.

My previous work includes roles with +Acumen and Ashoka U, working as a 2015 KPCB Design Fellow, and helping to redesign Brown University’s social entrepreneurship curriculum. I’ve worked as a graphic and web designer for the last seven years.

In 2016, I graduated magna cum laude from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island with a degree in Science, Technology, and Society. I’ve also studied in the Design & Technology program at Parsons the New School for Design, and in the Graphic Design program at the Rhode Island School of Design. I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska.




I also really love to bake pie.
