Community

I'm currently co-chairing the marketing committee for PDX Design Festival 2022, and am on the Education Committee for AIGA Portland.


Over the last four years, I've helped organize and participate in two 24-hour hackathon for non-profits.


I was an event organizer for Refresh DC — a local community of digital design and development folks — for two years, where I focused on creating conversations around things like inclusion in tech, more equitable models for leadership, and accessibility.


I’ve also done a bit of speaking on the importance of mentorship — including a memorable fireside chat/Between Two Ferns mashup with our creative director.
