What I do

  • Media platforms: social media, presentation slide decks, brochures, posters, etc.

My background

My journey at UCAR started in February 2018 after moving to Colorado from California. I hold a B.A. in Communication (digital media) from the University of California, Davis, and most recently I worked as a research assistant at Caltech creating geologic maps for Nevada’s Basin and Range province. Prior to that, I spent four years in San Francisco working as a graphic designer/art director in tech and digital retail. Since moving to Colorado, I have decided to pursue a post-baccalaureate in atmospheric and oceanic sciences, part-time at CU Boulder, and my goal is to combine my love of the sciences with my passion for media.


  • Geology: my curiosity for the Earth system sciences fuels my wanderlust and my desire to share the science.
  • Traveling: 19 countries and counting!
  • The great outdoors: hiking, camping, skiing, etc.
  • Environmental conservation: we may be on a “pale blue dot” but it’s the only home we’ve got!
