Interests

The intersection of health, policy and urban infrastructure. The mind-body connection, both on and off the mat. The ability for one to operate from a space of integrity, pure heartedness and joy, and the daily pursuit of this mission in all things.

My dream job benefits the greater good by supporting marginalized communities, especially where related to health and wellbeing. I would love to work for a startup, where innovation is key, and eventually create policies that have a positive impact for our most fragile groups.
