I grew up surrounded by stories in the US, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka; all of which fostered my passion for social issues, travel, and capturing experiences. As the daughter of a photographer, I learned that words and visuals are equally valuable for effectively sharing a message.
I love storytelling — from identifying the why, to brainstorming the how, to conceptualizing the design, to storyboarding and fleshing it out, to collaborating with other creatives to bring it to life, to polishing the story, and to finally sharing it with the ideal audience.
Since obtaining an MPA in International Public & Nonprofit Management & Policy from NYU’s Wagner School of Public Service in 2012, I have contributed my strategic and creative communications skills to projects around the world — from large-scale ventures like the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health and Women Deliver to local community organizations in Guatemala and Sri Lanka.
In the pursuit of creative storytelling, I have also served as an editor for a manuscripts, provided digital content direction for a podcast, developed unique travel guides, and continue to write poetry and prose.
