About Me

I’m passionate about stories–using them to connect people and inspire others to action. I believe that social media can be a powerful tool in telling a nonprofit’s story and engaging the community in which it works. I love using digital art and media, along with events and community engagement, to raise awareness and enact change.

I’ve worked with nonprofits in Pittsburgh, upstate New York, DC, and even Serbia, telling stories of clients, staff, and the organization itself. And with an educational background in informational writing and international development, I have the skill-set and knowledge to know what stories and strategies will drive people to act.
