"Experiences illustrate lives."


I found my place in the world playing a board game, raised by its colorful community along the way. Capping my Scrabble journey by winning a US National Championship at age 24 didn't hurt, either.


Along the way I've done a few other things: I earned a degree in cognitive psychology, taught myself to be a heavy metal drummer, traveled both the USA and the world, and most recently, worked on a famous food truck, Portland's Grilled Cheese Grill.


The thrill of the experience has come full circle, as creating them for others has become my passion. As a student of Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, I find myself chasing a simple, yet never-ending goal:


If I can create experiences that enrich the lives of others, then I believe I will have left my mark on the world.

say hi!
