Having spent much of my working life in a learning laboratory, I thrive at the intersection where art, science, and education meet. I have experience in live streaming and video production, public programs, exhibition curation and design, and visitor engagement. I love working with smart, creative people, and in finding new ways to excite audiences. Most recently, I acted as a project director, curator, and producer at the Exploratorium, the beloved museum in San Francisco, and as an Operations Manager at The Hydrous, an ocean conservation and education non-profit, also in San Francisco. I am currently working at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park, as a Senior Project Manager in the Exhibits department.
Working in the informal education field gave me the opportunity to continue my own learning, cultivate my curiosity, keep growing, and inspire others.
