Merging communities and the arts with technology.
Boston was my home for some time, where I participated in the vibrant non-profit sector as a grantmaker, partnering with agencies doing incredible work to make the world a better place. I am most heartened by the work in support of equity, education and youth. Saffron Circle was a part of my life - a giving circle that impacted emerging and innovative social change organizations. Saffron Circle is by the community for the community - check out Saffron Circle's website and give the grantees some love.
Recently (well, not so recent now), I relocated to New York state and became drawn to The Lake Champlain International Film Festival and met some talented filmmakers and producers along the way. Prior to that, I supported Vân-Ánh Võ to fundraise for a project called The Odyssey - a thoughtful multimedia production examining the costs of war. After completing The Odyssey's premiere at both Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., I moved to the North Country to be with my love.
I have bounced around the world, broadening my perspective through languages, food, and new experiences that nourish my body, mind and soul. I was that long-term visitor in Egypt, Vietnam, and Mexico...and the short term stints in SE Asia, Middle East, and Africa.
Moving forward, I am seeking out creative endeavors to apply my range of skills, collaborate with teams of awesome people, and build something truly worthwhile to connect people and contribute to the world. Projects that are interesting to me tend to utilize both my left and right brain. My career trajectory is a non-linear and it is the way I like it.
If you think I might fit in on be a good fit for a project or in your organization - let's chat!
