Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I grew up in Bozeman, Montana, and lived there for the first 18 years of my life. I developed strong sense of curiosity and a desire to explore everything around me—first through hiking, camping, paddle boarding, and general adventuring—from a young age, and that passion has followed me as I've left Bozeman for LA and Hong Kong. Both professionally and personally, I love trying new things and I'm always up for a challenge. My favorite projects are the ones other people have described as "crazy", "impossible" or "really hard but super cool", and I love spending time and working with others who can help me continue to push the boundaries of what's possible.

Interesting Factoid

My retirement plan is to open either a bakery or a tattoo parlor.
