“I want to think again of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable and beautiful and afraid of nothing as though I had wings.” Mary Oliver

USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative

This is a unique intiative that offers incredible arts and humanities events to the USC community and general public. This program is near and dear to my heart as I was a student volunteer and now serve as a staff member. Check out this video celebrating the first ten years of this dynamic program!

Smithsonian Institution

Office of Special Events and Protocol Intern

Developed and executed programmatic and logistical elements of a vast array of events that included visits from heads of state, museum exhibition openings, black tie dinners, conference luncheons, and symposia hosted by the Board of Regents, the Secretary, Under Secretaries, Museum Directors and other senior staff at Smithsonian museums, and research centers.

Skirball Cultural Center

Program Intern

Through the LA County Arts Commission Internship, I worked closely with Skirball's Program staff in maintaining artist relations, databases, and ticketing for the annual Sunset Concerts series as well as researching and preparing for the fall film series in conjunction with the forthcoming exhibition Light & Noir: Exiles and Emigrés in Hollywood, 1933-1950.

University of Southern California

Bachelor of Arts (BA), Narrative Studies

I entered as a stage manager, but switched to Narrative Studies to broaden my coursework to all the storytelling forms I was interested in after I had the difficult realization that your major doesn't define your career and neither define your life. My time at USC was about discovery and exploration and I wouldn't trade my experience there for anything. Fight on!

Library Foundation of Los Angeles

Assisted in planning, coordination and logistics for Los Angeles Public Library events. Maintained database of donors and benefactors.
