I am a creative strategist, writer, and curator currently based between New York City and Boston. Both personally and professionally, I am obsessed with architecting language and imagery to create resonance in new ways.

I have lived and worked in Washington DC, Shanghai, Rabat, and Mexico City and am fascinated by the roles that design and the visual arts play in shaping culture across different geographic contexts.

For work ︎︎︎ With a background in brand, marketing, and business strategy, I am passionate about leveraging smart creative to help companies achieve unparalleled growth. I enjoy crafting compelling brand narratives that resonate with consumers across all stages of the funnel.

I am currently freelancing out of WORLD STUDIOS, where I help clients spanning tech, fashion, consumer goods, and more achieve their brand dreams. Previously, I was Head of Growth as well as Social Media & Content Producer at IYK, where I led content strategy and verbal brand.

For play ︎︎︎ You can find me heading to dance class, curating the East Asian Graphics Archive, experimenting with photography, musing on brand here, and attempting to maintain my Duolingo streak.

Some things I’m inspired and intrigued by: solo travel, social impact, visual culture in the digital age, non-Latin type design & design archives, slow fashion, fast-paced cities, and cafe rituals around the world.
