About Me

Currently at Twitter as a Project Manager working between our Legal, Trust & Safety, and Engineering orgs to develop and maintain policy and legal compliance internal tools. Also a co-founder of Sugar & Spun—a nationally distributed gourmet cotton candy business where I focus on design, content production, and marketing. Videography is a hobby of mine and I plan to produce a series mini documentaries to capture people’s stories and passions.
