Human with passions for Relationship Building, Creative Thinking, Event Planning, Nonprofit Administration, and Museum Education
I am a human who thrives on creativity and relationships. As a 5th grader, I learned the Les Miserables soundtrack by heart. I cried over my CD player because I hadn't felt 14 different emotions all at once before. It felt like my "true self" was activated.
I have been on a journey to keep finding those sources of life and truth ever since. In art, in fashion, in relationships, in design, in myself. If happy things make you a little sad and you're not always sure why, we'll get along great. Thanks for being here!
